Experimental, live recording
Music for BIG DATA POETRY, a video work by Geert Mul :
TENT, live performance at 06/16/2012, Rotterdam,
Geert Mul & Michel Banabila, Sounds Spectrums event.
"One of the most perfect combinations of visual and audio materials I have ever visited. The three big videoscreens and the impressive soundscapes gave comfortable as well as uncanny experiences of immersion. " (Marcel Cobussen - Thinking Sounds).
Voices sampled from radio, sampled from the archive of Mark Dingemanse, and sampled from the Archive Of UCLA Phonetics Lab:
Cut up voices, tuned, with some electronic treatments.
I chose most of the voices based on their sound, emotion, timbre, regardless of any literal meaning of the words.
New (non existing) words and phrases were formed with the rearranging of tiny samples.
