about

A fun and mischievous little curio from the vault. Here are eight noisy miniatures that were published in the "Static #6" (2007) magazine of the London Consortium, a collaborative effort of the Architectural Association, Birkbeck College (University of London), the Institute of
Contemporary Arts, The Science Museum, and the Tate Museum. See: static.londonconsortium.com/issue06/

These were intended as hypothetical behavior modifying drones / loops. Their overtly aggressive character is maybe my wry commentary on the types of paranoiac authorities who require an absolute monopoly on the use of coercion to be obeyed, and who trust their own citizenry to do virtually nothing without it being yelled at 110db and carrying with it additional threats of force.

Composition was mainly done with ProTools, Max/MSP and humble, 'cracked' Texas Instruments detritus. There is some additional commentary attached here in a brief .pdf document on the subject.

Given the already "loop"-y character of these pieces, anyone who downloads is free to recycle them into their own original compositions.
