The Convolving Universe

by diatonis

Angelic, ambient, shimmering, mystical resonance: this album combines the essence of medieval gothic choirs with modern day electronics to produce a visionistic sonic experience not normally found in present day electronic music.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This is a professionally pressed CD. The album was created using a process called Convolution, which is a digital signal processing algorithm where the spectral information from one sound (the impulse) is multiplied together with spectral information of another sound (the sound source). Both the impulse and the source sounds can be minutes long and produce some of the most interesting sounds imaginable.

I started by playing a simple 4 to 11 note phrase using single and multi-voiced choir samples. I then recorded the resulting phrase into another sampling keyboard and then played it one would a normal piano. I only could play a few notes in each octave or it would start to sound very chaotic. I then convolved these resulting loops with a variety of other sounds (impulses), and finally mixed these to create the songs. I also used a vocoder in many of the tracks as well as samples of my own voice.

The album took two solid weeks to master. The convolution process creates some pretty heavy overtones that made it very difficult to control the sound. This was on of the most difficult albums to master. On the other hand, I delighted at the random element and textures it produced.

Diatonis - Los Angeles, CA. Dec 2000

I am lost for words...
One of the most amazing albums I have ever come across. Don't know how it does it but the songs on it makes me feel like I am in another level of consciousness, a place where I am safe and my problems are non existent. I am still waiting for the day I can jet around at 30 000 feet in a comfy chair during a trans Atlantic night flight while The Convolving Universe is taking me on a even higher journey.
