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.
It was pretty obvious early that certain types of image manipulation would produce exceptional amounts of noise. But, the question was: could it be interesting noise? To explore the possibilities of noise manipulation I used a series of filters, harmonic manipulators, and eq to sweep over the noise source and modify the sound, achieving different types of shapes within the noise.
