ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For cd 1, I made two walks in Berlin, recording gps data all along. Both walks were exactly 30 minutes and started from the same point. Later, at EMS studios in Stockholm, I fed the Buchla synthesiser with the data (transformed as voltage) and recorded different takes with different settings. I then mixed the files together, all 30 minutes long. I ended up with two tracks, one for each walk. For cd 2, I was looking for a way to translate the data into sound with less personal input. There are 7 clocks on the wall in the lounge at EMS, each telling the same time, but not making the same sound. I used that logic : I made cycles of one second where each second has 7 clicks. The first one is a regular one second click. The others vary according to the latitude, logitude and altitude of the two walks. To render the progression of the walks, I added one millisecond to each "cycle", starting with one second long cycles, ending up with two seconds long cycle, and thus a one hour long track.
