Saskatoon Library - Open

Tod Emel reimagines his Saskatoon Library sound, part two:

"From ‘Scribe’ I worked reductively to realize the track ‘Open,’ sampling a short section of the exchange between mother and daughter. This sample was time stretched and heavily processed. I then used the sample as the basis for an improvised laptop performance that has a gritty lo-fi/broken analog synth aesthetic that is very much in line with the sort of work I’m currently producing. As an improvised piece, I was looking to respond to the fluid nature of performance suggested by the ‘water’ Oblique Strategy."
