Feed the (Audio) Gremlins After Midnight (MP3)

Perhaps we should feed the gremlins after midnight. That’s what Chris Herbert did, albeit inadvertently. He came back to his desk one morning to discover that he’d left some audio software going overnight. It picked up stray sounds and converted them into an alternately blissful and tension-riddled stretch of glitchy wonderment, which Herbert posted at his account under the title “untrammelled/overnight.” If you enjoy it, download it quickly, as Herbert reports, “I’ll likely delete this in short order.”

If you’d like to hear what this same software was intended to be used for, Herbert explains that over at he posted a purposeful composition he’d made with it.
