Wait. Are you saying that if you take existing recordings and loop them they can sound cool? Get out of here!

bagsok

good!!! thanks for your sharing

mr. mike

You should have done this to bits of Metal Machine Music; it would make the reverberating tones of that album sound more like an automated machine shop. It's not enough to loop music or film, you also have to stagger it, create rythems within the repetitions. There was a movie made out a breakfast scene of "To Kill a Mockingbird" (it might have been done by Bruce Conner) and the original scene was a minute long, but with loops, staggers, and slow motion it took five minutes.

mr mike,
while I certainly agree with you about staggering and changing the rhythms to create entirely new pieces of music, that is not quite my intent with these pieces. for one, i am not learned in the ways of doing such things and would not know how to even begin; my point of entry was discovering a repetition that was mechanical in nature (the forced repetition of the needle in a groove on a scratched record). i was not trying to make entirely new music, but to see how altering and repeating music normally without a mechanical repetition would change my perception of the music i already listen to.

i agree that this would be interesting with the metal machine music, for sure. the music i posted are merely examples of what i was trying to talk about, rather than vice versa.

thanks for your thoughts. i'll have to try and track down that film scene you mentioned.

Thank you. It strikes me that most music is made of repeated fragments from a very limited body of sonic material, much like the limitless possibilities of language are generated from a limited number of phonemes. And I'm totally with you. I'm fascinated how focusing on one fragment of a piece changes the perception of the whole. It's all in our head!
