about

A System That Slips
By Max Eilbacher

These sequences of sound are a sonic meditation of sorts....

The core sounds of these pieces were generated with a digital synthesis formula of my creation. I envisioned/heard a system that would handle the subtleties of extreme digital timbres and enact the artifice of perceptual organization. My friend Chris Madock refined a version of the digital synthesizer I created. With his finessing, I could implement an array of these digital synthesizers all connected to a central timing system. With a cluster of digital synths, modulation points within the synthesis, and triggers connected to a timing structure, I had a complex system of sound generation. I constructed the system to avoid random jumps in tempo and modulation. Instead, I wanted the digital synthesis, the rate of events, and the way parameters morphed, to unravel at a slow pace. To do so, the timing architecture that triggers the synthesis is constructed in a manner in which the overarching system is in a state of constant subtle change. In short, the structure that produces the triggering of events for the system is always heading towards a state of being “off,” or slipping. To add another layer to the fluctuating patterned audio, on certain tracks a kick drum is triggered whenever the synthesis reaches a certain spectral energy. The combination of event generation and synthesis controlled by the slipping system generates a monolith of steadily undulating audio and auto-destructive phrases in constant glissade. The interweaving, phasing, and fleeting alignment that one might hear in these pieces is constantly evolving.
