This generative EP is an iPhone/iPodTouch app that plays continuous music. It drifts within a mood without repetition, making it an ideal companion for reading, work, relaxation, and those times when you want to listen to something that dissolves into the environment and yet is always there. The sound is ambient, electronic, and minimal through a mix of sampled micro-textures, melodies, and atmospheric washes.
No interaction required—just launch and listen. Headphones or a quiet amplification system are recommended.
The real baby reindeer is actually a toy—the Fisher-Price "Ocean Wonders Soothe and Glow Seahorse." It was a gift to my son, who cuddled with it at night and enjoyed the mix of classical melodies and ocean sounds. When my daughter saw it for the first time she squealed with delight, saying, "Oh look! It's a baby reindeer!" It was soft. It lit up when you squeezed its belly. Everyone was fond of the "baby reindeer." I was fascinated with the way that, as its batteries ran down, the melodies and ocean sounds would detune and garble. Short, micro-recordings of these sounds comprise many of the parts heard in this music.
