Bicycle Ride Meagan Peat

This composition is a result of stubbornness and a mostly ruined recording session. For all of the hour recording session only the first few rings of the bell recorded within the first thirty seconds surviving without the air conditioner that buzzes in the rest of the recording. The piece became an exploration of the potential transformations of the single sound coupled with short pulses that contain the entire recording compressed into a short moment and interesting sound errors that arose from the software I used to stretch and transform my work. The work explores the potential of repetition of one sound with many subtle variations. The work also explores the potential of careful artificial panning of sound as well as the effects of altering when a sound hits each ear to create a sense of movement for the piece.
