After “Sorry”

A remix of an approximation of speech

There are few pleasures unique to the post-Internet age as the fairly immediate experience of hearing your effort as filtered through another person’s viewpoint. In the case of the music remix, the idea of a filter can be quite literal. Yesterday while playing with the manner in which one sine wave can be used simultaneously to multiple ends, with an interest in a kind of coherent complexity, I stumbled on something that resembled human speech. Today, the far more talented Larry Johnson has taken the tones of that work and attenuated them into a throbbing, dusky drone.
