Natural phenomena processed using computer algorithms
Computer-generated sinewaves were recorded and then played back into a naturally reverberant room using a stereo speaker arrangement. The resulting room sound + original playback were mixed, recorded and then electronically treated. Computer-generated attenuated white noise, recorded then played back outside over a stereo speaker arrangement. Speaker playback + naturally occurring sounds were mixed and re-recorded.
Recording made outdoors. Naturally occurring sounds + electromagnetic output from a laptop computer played back into itself, mixed and processed in real-time using FLOSS software under GNU/Linux.

Gorgeous drones. Track 1 has a similar kind of wide-screen, big-sky, beautiful-yet-melancholy "American" sound that William Basinski's Disintegration Loops has... like listening to remnants of a Copeland symphony after it's echoed through every empty train terminal in the country. Jascha Narveson
