The first post published at The Noja Recordings Archives on Jul 7, 2012 presents the work GROUND NOISE and related description. GROUND NOISE consists of two tracks: SUITE and TAPE.
Here is an excerpts from the post, full available here:
“When I started to work on this piece my first intention was to record something with my Harmony electric guitar but frustrated with the hums and noises of the pickup I decided toÂ loop half-a-second of these, duplicate this loop in three tracks, send them to three buses with a lot of plugins in-chain, then usingÂ the mixer of the digital workstationÂ as an instrument to manipulate all this stuff live in real time” … “I listened to this stereo version for hours that I started to hearing (or imaging) other sounds than the recorded ones, generated between the surfaces and depths of the noise textures. I thought to try to concretize in recorded sounds a few of the infinite possible interpretations of these sonic illusions generated by the intersected plans of changing noise.”
