Listening to art. Playing with audio. Sounding out technology. Composing in code. Rewinding the soundscape.

Procedural MP3s

Bruno Ribeiro creates short, narrative-like tracks from found sounds, B-movie atmospheres and vaguely mechanistic rhythms. The four songs that comprise his Edit, Transform, Renew, Create album on the MiMi netlabel ( include shimmering noise set against glistening shards (“Na Passagem Das Horas,” MP3) and what seem like broadcast snippets forged into something sinister (“The Post-Orgasmic Sleep or the Dream of the Magenta and Blue Organic World,” MP3). The album’s title lays bare Ribeiro’s technique: taking existing sound and reworking it until something new is exposed, and that somehow the exposing suggests a story.
