I heard a lecture about the entropy that is endemic in a modern city and it started me thinking about how much we rely on machines.
If you live in a place like Arizona it might not be possible to do so for much of the year if not for mechanical cooling. The sounds of machines are all around most of us in our daily lives as background noise. In this piece there were many recordings of machines that were manipulated and abused with effects to create the final piece. Fans, pumps, open relays, squeeking belts and groaning motors are the order of the day here. There is also some Modular activity on the track. I used some of that gear to process some of the recordings.
