Static Gestures II (Formant Pulses)

Kevin Austin

  • Year of composition: 1987
  • Duration: 10:00


This oxymoronicaly titled algorithmic piece was created in the studio of the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon in the fall of 1987 with an old EMS Synthi 100. When played over a multi-speaker system, the basic complexity of the spectrum of the signal creates the illusion of movement, and the sound splitting apart.
