fever of liquid prosthesis [disquiet0029-countzero] by offthesky published on 2012/07/23 19:23:16 +0000 i decided to go a more minimal route, production-wise, for this sketch and focus mainly on the concept and fiction surrounding it. since this week's edition of junto is inspired by cyberpunk author william gibson's book "count zero", i specifically geared this sketch to encompass the following line that was provided as part of the dogma or inspiration for this 29th edition of disquiet junto: "The plane had gone to ground near the sound of running water. Turner could hear it, turning in the g-web in his fever or sleep, water down stone, one of the oldest songs." ~asside from the opening of chapter 17 a few years ago, i actually recorded the stream sample(used throughout this sketch), made a long loop out of it and put it on my mp3 player and used it at night to help me fall asleep during periods of lite insomnia. the sketch starts with the natural unedited water sample and slowly fades into a more fictional or synthetic version of water that i created via reaktor - a cybernetic, tonal water-like texture. i also, throughout the course of the sketch, lightly panned the real water recording to the left to occupy the analytical left-side portion of the brain and panned the synthetic water sounds to the right to be apart of the right brain processing plant. and at the end the two are smeared a bit on fade out - indicating that a sleep state has been induced. the sketch could be thought of as what the character "turner" from the line above is hearing or perceiving as he drifts near the river into a cybernetic fever sleep.
