Reykjavik Art Museum reimagined by Shaun Malone.

"This was a very short clip so I applied some heavy time stretching and pitch shifting to allow the rhythm, texture and space of the sound to be heard in detail. Using Ableton Live I focused on looping rhythmic elements of the sound and layering it against itself at different speeds. To represent “brain” I added a repeating sine tone at 40Hz, the typical frequency for gamma waves. “petted” was covered courtesy of a cat purring, found on freesound at https://freesound.org/s/260881/. “went” had me stumped for ages, until I realised I could use a plugin to make the sound appear to fade into the distance and come back again. The piece is 2:11 long, as the number 211 has a personal significance to me. I came up with the title by putting the 3 words through an anagram server and finding that ///beard.intent.wept is located in a small town in Czechia!"
