Light Pours in the Valley / La vallée illuminée Michael Dean

“Light Pours in the Valley” is the expression of audio artefacts. Clicks and pops from digital malfunctions, accidental tones generated from broken soundcards and cell phone interference all contribute to the presentation of this concept. Iterative and repetitive processing techniques further emphasize the sound of digital technologies, limiting compositional methods to those afforded by digital interfaces and audio processing techniques. Physical modelling, granular synthesis and spectral processing techniques are performed using tangible interfaces, such as multi-touch surfaces. Audio softwares are “played”, promoting musicality during the development of sound materials. “Light Pours in the Valley” expresses the sound of our current digital environment, while continuing traditions of minimalism, noise art and microsound.
