Been working on this Max-based soundscape-sort-of-thing for a little while now, intended to be a dreamy documentation of the little part of South East London that I live in, called Deptford. It’s basically a collection of field recordings playing all simultaneously, but with timbre/amplitude/a few other things controlled by real time data about the tidal levels of the River Thames, which, for centuries, was the lifeblood of this part of London. In the post-industrial era, it is less so, but the two are still intrinsically linked. This is probably the minimum length for hearing any sort of change, as the tide level only gets updated every fifteen minutes, so a recording of this length really only takes in the movement from one reading to the next.
The drone-y part that makes up the tonal centre of the piece is actually one of my first experiments with w/, running a little loop through Rings and then drowned in Valhalla Vintage verb in the patch. Delay on other tracks is my favourite delay ever: Soundtoys’ PrimalTap.
