Etudes

2004-11-18

For several years I’ve thought of creating a short sound each day as an etude in sound design/synthesis/processing. Yesterday I realized that I’ve been doing that for a long time already without really being aware of it and without saving or storing the various sounds I’m creating.

Here’s a sound based on a recording of a strong river processed in various ways and played back asyncronous in two channels using jit.peek~ to morph between diffent processed versions of it. The result to me sounds like various soft sweeps passing in one or the other direction. That’s a perceptive illusion somewhat similar to the phase techniques Steve Reich used in the 60s.

The original sound file was part of material used for Norway Remixed. The current work is part fo the development for the upcoming installation in collaboration with Kurt Ralske at Electrohype.
