Ancient Biographies Sarah Davachi

The sound material for ‘Ancient Biographies’ consists of granular voices, one FM voice, a low-pass filter and a fixed filter bank. The character of the piece is very much affected by the processing involved; given the appearance of granular synthesis in the latter half of the piece, a sort of unsettled yet persistent feeling is created. However, this feeling is first established at the opening of the piece by way of a sample of running water being fed through a low-pass filter, resulting in a sort of gritty rhythm. The smooth and fluctuating character of the filter-bank and FM voices are introduced to balance the sound from the low-pass filter as it transitions into the granular processing.
