Duet for Synthesizer and Spin Cycle
This piece was shot under a railroad bridge that I ride under during my commute. While trains are going over the bridge a nice rumbling, screechy ambience envelopes the space. On this occasion, a few weeks ago, melting icicles were dripping onto the sidewalk adding a chaotic rhythm to the soundscape. Rather than producing a drone to mimic the ambience I used noise, LFO pitch sweeps, and sample-and-hold on the Monotribe to contrast the reverberated railroad rumbling, and screeching.
NOTE: This is a binaural recording mixed with a monophonic, analog, synthesizer performance. Please use headphones to experience the binaural effect. For more info please visit audiocookbook.org/duet-for-synthesizer-and-spin-cycle/
