Okay, so following on from Cloudpiercer and Earthmover this is the result of a simple experiment, trying to see just how much I could get out of very little.

I programmed a few notes of sampled choir, to create a 12 second loop. I then stretched this to over 100 times its original length, and with some additional processing, this is the result. I think if you want to get an overview of this piece without listening to the whole thing, listen to the first minute, one minute in the middle, then the last minute. It's not a piece for active listening.

I wanted to get this out there because I think it was a successful example of getting a lot of material out of almost nothing. I intend to explore this further in far more complex ways, involving looping and overdubbing at a later date, but for now, this is a little bit of a mission statement.

Stretching performed by Extreme Sound Stretch (hypermammut.sourceforge.net/paulstretch/). The original source is included in any download version for reference. Which you don't have to pay for of course, just click buy and pay zero.
