***NOTE: DUE TO THE INITIAL MAXIMUM UPLOAD SIZE RESTRICTION IT WAS NECESSARY TO SPLIT THIS PIECE PRIOR TO PUBLICATION. THIS WILL BE AMENDED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

This entire piece is constructed from a one second recording of the clock in my bathroom. It is varisped down to 16x and up to 1/128x. I created playlists consisting of everything from one second down and everything from one second up and loaded them into various players and played them randomly. I was surprised to hear that the list with the shorter files was evidently getting stuck in the same pattern for extended periods of time. I further exploited this glitch by loading the list more heavily with a given element the shorter the time segment. I then recorded the result, performed a spectrum analysis on the file and generated a drone based on the dominant frequencies. The final piece is a rendering of these two files.

about

Radio Landscape

I live in Milwaukee, WI with my wife and our four children. The creation of music has long been an avocational pursuit of mine. The body of work that I offer under the moniker of Radio Landscape has obvious antecedents in American minimalism specifically and electronic music in general.

Thank you for your interest.
