Working with a single image to create a series of variations is the focal point of this release.  It is a showcase of variations based on putting one image through multiple image manipulation filters.

The Unattributed project is built on the concept of transformation. However, unlike other projects that center on transformation, this project seeks to move the concept in more directions through the use of a generative music processes to produce the sounds.

The recordings on this release were created by taking an image, performing specific manipulations to bring out aspects of the image. A series of these images were produced and then placed in an ANS synthesizer emulator. In the ANS emulator one or more of the images were processed at a time, with adjustments being made to the tempo, frequency spectrum, and sampling size used by the scanner. Once configured, the tracks were recorded straight to two track. All adjustments and mixing were performed in real-time during the recording process.

As a showcase of just how much variation is possible from manipulating the same image, this release is excellent. The first piece (33DAEFE5) is very noisy, and contains a slow glissando based on the lines contained within the image. However, these qualities are completely transformed into a pulsing, shifting series of tonal clusters on 1F87900F.

The final piece (CC76175) centers on simple, abstract, clean tones. There is very little pulsing or noise present on this piece. It’s simple, easy to listen to (when compared to 33DAEFE5 and 1F87900F).
