My aim is to extract information from an original sound source, and present a listener with something that he or she would not have recognized in the original piece of audio. In my remix, the Tellus Tools double LP was used as matrix for creating new sounds as much as it was material for repurposing. Through the process of burning this collection onto a series of three audio CDs, I began to use various playback devices to sample these sounds. By marking the readable faces of these CDs with sharpie marker, I was able to damage these audio files, and use these playback devices as instruments which in turn, extracted microcosmic bits of detail, which are present in these sound files.

Though there are infinite possibilities with how to layer these various discs, as well as endless hours of playability within the marks made on each playable side, my composition is a selection of the areas where the Tellus Tolls double album is both transformed and somewhat recognizable. "Corrupted File," is a round-about method examining the erotic beauty of destruction as a kind of digital collage. This was an exercise in composing fragments and chaotic glitches as well as an attempt to redefine "remix" as having nothing to do with dancing.
