thick 'n' thin

an advanced sound design exercise

i did this piece in chris mercer's advanced sound design class during my undergrad. i used a max/msp patch i created called synth_workshop.pat, which is basically a 4-tone generator that implements random processes in a variety of ways, namely frequency modulation, gain change and waveshape selection. i took the resulting recording of a 1 minute clip and phase vocoded it using soundhack, convolved it with the original and with a little love in logic, added the source material at the end and wound it all up with some automation.
