The floodgates open

Oct 30, 2014, 10:20 AM, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England

Mimetik - a Hamburg-based sound artist - remixes the sound of a boat going through floodgates: "I chose 014-"Tourist boat ... " simply because I love Hamburg's harbour: the industrial vibe that it emanates, especially during the latest hours of the nigh, makes it a very special place for me. I tried then to sonically reproduce the feel of a trip amidst a steel and iron landscape, but with an oniric dimension to it.

The sound sample was used to produce various textures via different synthesis techniques, granular in particular, which have been complemented with digitally synthetised sounds. Different softwares and analog instruments were used, in particular Ableton Live, Reaktor, and SuperCollider."
