about

A room was covered in bubble wrap, and I used four room mics into Pure Data. Each mic went through a pitch shifter, was panned in quad, and went into two delays. All parameters (transposition, chunk size, pitch shift delay, pan, 2-bus delay, regeneration, delay level) were set randomly by the system, at intervals that were themselves updated randomly. At times, the system would tip into oscillation.

released April 9, 2013

Thanks to Wall-to-Wall Studios for organizing the event doing the bubble wrapping, and inviting me to do the installation. Well done.
