Diving Bell

digital wind-chime feedback
Four wind-chime samples, played back and re-recorded continuously, are distorted and explored through brief changes in playback speed. As each sample is recorded back into its buffer, momentary increases or decreases in speed cause the samples to overflow their buffer boundaries or shift their rhythms with new repeats, mutating the timbres and creating new rhythmic interactions between the notes. A processed version of the output is recorded live and played back in reverse at the halfway mark, reconstructing the samples and giving the piece a distorted parabolic form.
