ICONS OF KIPPLE

The music on this CDR was performed live on the 11th November at Nordic Art Info, at the opening party of my exhibition of the same name.
The piece had as a background a recording I made earlier from Gustav Vigelands mausoleum. This was to give an overall sound of a church. It is an extremely reverby place with very interesting acoustics. On top of this I laid a number of audio experiments. First I had 2 instances of my Nosynchloop plug-in. These were loaded with identical samples, but one was panned left, the other right. The sounds triggered at different divisions so mage textures that moved left to right with strange synchs. I altered the setting constantly. Then I had 4 sound flies that I had sourced using Babylonian, a program that grab small snippets of sound files from a live internet language course. These were Norwegian, Arabic, Dutch and English. these snippets are still recognisable in their tone as being these languages, though the meanings are destroyed. Then I followed this with an advertising break, 8 TV commercials played in their entirety. Then an experiment where I played d4 sound files of Hilde reading different texts. The bible, the Koran, a steamy romance novel, and "minutes to go" a poem by Bryan Gysin. However the files were played thru "pegger" a device that take multiple inputs and spits them out in turn, therefore I got Hilde reading random sentences derived from the 4 texts... sort of. I accompanied all this on my air synth, using voice sounds.

I was generally very happy with the result, it got a tad loud toward the end though... sorry!
