Intracranial Pressure

By kevanatkins on January 17, 2016 5:54 pm

Warning: Piece does get loud

I had a blocked nose and it felt like my brain was trying to escape. So I tried to push it back in with sound. Then it kind of grew in to a work.

There's not much to this one. Most of the sound comes from the resonant filters ran through various forms of granular processing. I also played with a bit of ambisonic binaural encoding to make it feel like some of the sounds were flying past the head. I use two sound sources to excite the filters and that's pretty much all there is to it.

Original sources:

Frigging around with a contact mic by itself.

Some low register noodling on the Rhodes Mk I.

Aw man this is so intense. I can't actually listen to it the whole way through. Hopefully your head clears soon though.

The headache cleared up by the time I finished the track. Pseudoscience would call that a result.

This is superb. I am looking forward to listening with proper headphones at some stage in the future. But this is seriously lovely.

Use as directed. If symptoms persist, contact your local sound art professional.

Wow! I can certainly feel the pressure; like listening underwater.
