"Stock Phonography" [4 MB .mp3]
This song was an experiment in converting a lengthy atonal work -- Karlheinz Stockhausen's Mixtur (1965-7) -- into a short tonal work. File under "bratty."
I took snippets from a vinyl version of the Stockhausen, looped them, layered them, reversed them, etc. There is a certain ready-made consistency in the raw materials here, because KS had already electronically processed the piece's orchestral sounds -- he used a sine wave generator and ring modulator to slightly distort the live performances.
Am happy with the remixtur of the mixtur but it doesn't really fit in with my recent LP releases so I'm posting it on my blahg.
