sometime.. somehow.. in late 2022 telko got hold of NYZ's Akai MPC One to evaluate it for his own strange brew of experimental tendansieze .. as you can hear in this research report.
in bryen's own words: “.. [incomprehensible] .. and then woz trying to imagine w0t one of my ultra short hydraphone recordings would sound like with that PaulXStretch thingy. but i had not got it on my computer, although i did have access to 0ld blokeym8z MPC and it had time stretch, also high priority on the expz listy. so with that in mind i dug out a super tiny hydrophone sample from 2018 at bethungra dam in remote nsw, and kept repeatedly making it longer and loonger aannndddd loooongggeeeeerrrrr.. "
[the interviewer left at this point for lunch & later returned, we pick up here..]
" .. aaand even more loooongerer as well .. .. and layerererered.. so, well, after a bit it got pretty long, er , yea, quite long actually. so I setup a keymap program and triggered it from the pads, got setup with some loops adjusted as it evolved slowly over about an hour or so. in my mind i imagine this as a tiny frozen snapshot of trillions of tiny microorganisms & particles captured in a volume of water thats about to be sluiced, degungelified, and piped out to the new frontier world of plumbed water pipes..”
hydraphone snippet recorded 2018. mixed incredibly slowly over a yearish, during various periods from late 2022 until just now in oct 2023.
