About this album

This album is an archive of sound experiments I did recently. I don’t expect anybody to sit and listen all the way through this album. There’s too much of it. This is more of an archive to dip into occasionally. There’s lots of interesting stuff happening in these experiments.

On my computer’s hard drive I had a folder containing examples of various elements from which music could be constructed. These consisted of little midi files labelled things like: octave lesson, oriental, piano riff, power arp, power chord riff, major, minor, dorian, phrygian, algerian, lydian, arpeggios, arabian, sweeps, balinese, byzantine, scales, mixolydian, harmonic, chromatic, egyptian, hungarian, gypsy, hindu, minor pentatonic, etc. In another folder I had recordings of iconic speeches by people like Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, President Richard Nixon, Abbott and Costello, William Shatner, Martin Luther King, Mahatma Mohandas Gandhi, Mick Jagger, Prime Minister Winston Churchill, President John F. Kennedy, President Harry Truman, Yuri Gagarin, Stokely Carmichael and President Nelson Mandela. I decided to combine all of these with the singing voices of Mae Questel and Marlene Dietrich to produce a gigantic mix of radio signals which might be received from Planet Earth. Pity the poor Martian scientist who is trying to decode all this stuff.
