Saskatoon library - Scribe

Mar 31, 2015, 10:16 AM

Tod Emel reimagines his Saskatoon library sound, part one:

"Considering the human tendency to impose structure where none exists, with the track ‘Scribe’ I heavily altered a section of dialogue between two men speaking in a south-asian language, interrupted by a mother and young child entering the foyer from outside. I split the original recording into multiple tracks with different autofiltered frequencies, ‘wet’ reverb effects and choppy LFO settings to create a rhythmic structure and spatial ambience. The result suggests an angular movement through a space that upends our sense of being in a familiar space."
