Performed “antiviral exercise #6 (An Awkward Provenance (version))” Saturday

My contribution to the Waveforms concert on Saturday night at Enemy in Chicago consisted of a very short version of a piece called “An Awkward Provenance”.  It is one in a series of text-based works.  An exercise in ritual time.  An alphabetic intervention.  A bit of Pathetic Magic….  Here is an older version of the piece:

Sound sample of experiments with bit handling

I recorded the digital pulses of my 8bit Analog to Digital converter last week and just got the chance to start experimenting with the results.  This is the first study. It uses a few of the samples I recorded.  It is mixed and processed at the bit level, eight tracks for eight bits.
