Two different small-size guitars; one a "proper" electric with microtonal frets in the top half of the fingerboard, the other a toy but with metal strings tuned to the same scale as an egg slicer. Two different recordings of each, all through…

The result of misapplied noise reduction to Dada Is Nothing. I didn't notice that the app was set to "residue", so what was left is what would normally be removed. It sounded so good that I decided to keep it (after normalizing). Submitted to…

Same recording as In Vitro Veritas, but different effects - the main one being a sliding pitch/tempo scale, with phase shifting and wah thrown in for good measure. Submitted to Sound-In "What Does Happiness Sound Like?" for 22-29/09/2022.

Same sound source as En Gin E, but different recording. "Speed" changed in Audacity, resulting in slowed rhythm and dropped pitch; reverb is natural, from the original recording. Submitted to Sound-In "What Does Happiness Sound Like?" 22-29/9/2022.

Sound source is the processor in my MacBook Pro, picked up using a device constructed in a workshop led by my friend Rob Cruickshank a few years ago (which also included the making of contact mics using piezo elements). Original recording was…

Taken from an old archival tape reel - probably mid-'90s - it took me a while to figure out what I had done here. Written on the tape box was the word "Slowbird", and it eventually dawned on me that the obvious theremin part was dubbed onto a…

Decided to play around a bit with the individual files for "Quiet Table" so ran one part through a wah-wah effect and the other was given some reverse reverb; the whole thing was stretched three times. Also submitted to Sound-In "Intuitive Determinacy…
