Spin Georges Azzaria (2007)

The pieces on Spin were composed using a software program Avatar created for Georges Azzaria, called the shredder_REGLUER.

The pieces on Spin were composed using a software program Avatar created for Georges Azzaria, called the shredder_REGLUER. The program builds up and tears apart sound sequences in an implacable process of accumulation and discharge. The cycle begins with a sound loop and removes a brief snippet each time the loop starts over, continuing until all the segments have been removed and only silence remains. The process then occurs in reverse as sound snippets are added back until the sound is restored in its entirety. 

 

The Spin CD also contains the shredder_REGLUER software allowing listeners to watch the building and tearing up as they occur and interact with the resulting sounds.
