Drei ausgedehnt Retro Brüder Sylvia DeTar

In creating Drei ausgedehnt Retro Brüder, I sang Frère Jacques, Brüder Jakob, and Brother John, layered them together, and reversed them. I created more tracks with Scottish smallpipes, classical guitar, claves, woodblocks, drumsticks, and clapping. These tracks I stretched using granular synthesis, shrunk, and layered to produce masses of sound. I was initially intrigued with the universality of the song and creating a different “language” with the layers.
