Noise Robert Polzoni

The composition Noise draws upon the aspect of popular music as its source of inspiration. In this composition, I wanted to write a piece that explores the aspect of dissonance in a non-traditional manner. To accomplish this goal I made extensive use of distorted sound files. The source material for the composition was taken from a variety of different sound sources. Some material was generated from voice samples, while others were entirely synthetic in nature. One notable exception is the sample of a harpsichord, which after extensive processing became the contrasting ending material for the piece.
