Oh man I absolutely LOVE this. It's given me an idea for some kind of piece, maybe an installation, where the environment is recorded constantly and fed into various samplers/slicers/effecters and so you get this evolving changing glitchy recycling of the environment. I would love to know more about this piece, because it is possibly my favourite of yours in the last couple of weeks, and you know how I love your work more generally.

Thanks!

I'll set aside the psychological motivation of this and leave that for therapy for now. But as far the process, everything is derived from a recording of a practice session and each layer in the piece is derived from a rendering of the previous, though the material isn't presented in that order. Pretty much all the sample manipulation was done in Simpler. I also used things like the MIDI random effects and the arpeggiator in set in free mode to generate a lot of material, which I could then chop up.
