As with all of my content, this entire process was documented in a live stream at www.twitch.tv/zeromeaning
A single solar eclipse was described in audio form. There are three sections of note.
1: The light of the Sun prior to the eclipse. A previous track (Bleed Diffusion) was reversed, pitch-shifted, and vocoded to produce the foundation of the track. A single vocal ‘ahhh’ lies alongside this in a worship-like drone.
2: The eating of the Sun. Elements of the track build up with distortion. White noise increases at an increasing rate. The vocals sing higher and higher notes, crescendoing to climax. As the point of total eclipse approaches, the white noise and foundation are pitch-bent into a low note that continues on under the track.
3: The sound of the eclipse itself. A bad recording from an analogue communications receiver is layered subtly over itself. This forms an iris, a central eye (or a blink).
This process was repeated at the end of the track in reverse to denote the end of the eclipse and the return of the Sun.
