Silence No Silence Stillness No Stillness Version 3 is on Soundcloud

This is getting much, much closer to what I had in mind. I added two new lines of data, one very high, arpeggiated, and the other very low, drawn out, with the intent that all of it is fed into the same synth system with the voice sample, but also all fed through a scale with notes missing to create opportunities for silence. The result is much less dense and the silent gaps aren’t as big.

A second draft of Silence No Silence Stillness No Stillness can now be heard on Soundcloud.

This piece is inspired by my partnership with Nick.

The audio sample fueling the synth is “the Jesus prayer”.

This is a work in progress inspired by my partnership with Nick.

I’m struggling to find a way to get more empty space and quiet sections, and isolated mutterings of the text with the current algorithms. I may end up keeping the idea, and going back to square one at some point.
