patch

All electronics, AVSynth (audio only) and Emilie Mouchous’ Solar Box, three tracks.

Track 1: uses the patch above, PeterB modules, a mix of the SPROTT band pass and chaos outputs, 30min long, recorded in real-time.

Track 2: uses ONLY Emilie’s Solar Box, the inputs from the AVSynth are turned off. Sound is coming through the Solar Box, it picks up a signal from the AVSynth as I move it above the patch cords across the modules from left to right. There’s a ’system hum’ that muddies the sound a little, but the hum is minimized when I hold the Solar Box against the side of the case. Again, 30min long, recorded in real-time.

Track 3: uses the patch above, PeterB modules, a mix of the SPROTT band pass and chaos outputs, 30min long, recorded in real-time.

All the tracks are 30min long, recorded one after the other without listening back to the previously recorded track(s). The three tracks are edited in Audacity, track 1 pushed left, track 2 in the center, track 3  pushed right. One hears the three tracks separately. Although the tracks are each recorded without direct reference one to another, the ‘chance’ coming together of the sounds is always, for me, interesting. Sounds often seem to move from one track to another, left to right or vice versa. Sometimes sounds are alike and sometimes they contrast. Here’s the result –
