Earthquake Étude

By kevanatkins on June 15, 2016 7:03 pm

This week has been shitty. Really shitty. I cannot scream. I cannot roar. I certainly cannot shake the house. But FM synthesis can. And that makes me feel a little better. This is the past week in noise form.

That certainly got my attention!

Hope this week is less shitty.

This is fucking gorgeous. Seriously. Really intense, but gorgeous.

I should append that this really has a kind of brutal, Mort Subotnick vibe. Totally your own, but this sounds convincingly analogue-y.

I am imagining this is surround-sound and scaring myself with it!

I haven't wrapped my ears around some Subotnick in a long time. Things can sound quite analogue-y just from being bandwidth-limited or having a funny frequency response. It's like with analogue BBD delays. Most of the sound comes from the aliasing and reconstruction filters, which exist on digital delays, just a higher frequencies.

I do have an 8 channel system that I could use for that. Just needs a sub. Hmm.

I saw Bernard Parmegiani perform one of his pieces with a massive 8-point system, and I think that's what I'm being reminded of.
