A guest GIFbites entry by otolythe

The GIFbites series continues to seek to locate the sonic equivalent of, the sonic score to, the phenomenon known as the animated GIF. The latest GIFbites entry, as always 15 seconds long, is a guest piece by friend-of-Disquiet otolythe. The uncharacteristically subdued GIF in question, shown above, could be a piece of toilet paper caught in a Levolor blind. The otolythe score is all television static, video-game sound effects, and distracted mastication — perhaps the very sounds of the living room that the Levolor in question guards from the harsh, suburban sun.

Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/gifbites. Animated GIF via whtebkgrnd.tumblr.com. Rules on GIFbites submissions are at gifbites.com. GIFbites is orchestrated by the insightful and curious Daniel Rourke, more from whom at twitter.com/GIFbites and machinemachine.net.
