Played the VirtualSynth app for iPhone (connected to speakers) live, and recorded the process. Started off with 245Hz; at 5 sec. added 485Hz; finally, at 10 sec., threw a nice 365Hz wave into the mix. I recorded these sine wave sounds live because I really like the physical rumble they produce, and wanted to capture the "natural" sounds they generated out of the speakers, the table they were atop, and the laptop recording the whole thing.

At 15 sec. I began manipulating everything, looping the 10 sec. section of layered sine waves and transforming individual moments of sound (the transition from 245 to 485, the tremble within the speakers created around the 5 sec. mark) into sounds resembling "beats" and bass-y background noise.

This was a neat Junto project for me, as it was my first time working explicitly with sine waves as the main audio source.
