First off, @sevenism, I love the word-creation “Antibanner”. That’s awesome.
NOTE - This piece is best with headphones!!
After reading the email prompt for this week’s Junto on Thursday, I woke up the next morning thinking about the project, as both my alarm and my partner’s alarm went off at the same time - both from an iPhone app called “SleepBot”. These two pieces of music are not designed to co-exist. Her’s, titled “Parisian Dream” is a soft acoustic guitar piece. Mine, the default, “Morning Dew”, is a little more uptempo, more fully orchestrated. Our phones play a loop of ocean waves at night to help mask city sounds (my partner’s a light sleeper) which are interrupted, rather abruptly, every morning by this music. I usually awake with the ocean sounds turning off before my alarm music even starts playing…
So, for this week, I mocked up our sleeping arrangement, with my phone to the right of my head, close, on a stack of books and her’s off to my left, on her side of the bed. I used my Roland CS-10EM binaural earphones to record my perspective, laying in bed listening to these two pieces intertwine. No effects, no additional sounds, just very light breathing, mingling ocean sounds, and two pieces of music that should never play together.
