The Revelation of Pilsner

Hammer Dulcimer in Harmonic Series Tuning, processed into 7 streams. Also I added a field recording which was processed by Audition.

The Revelation of Pilsner

This was created by taking a hammer dulcimer improvisation which was tuned to a harmonic series segment starting from G below middle C and harmonic series filtering it with Paul’s Extreme Stretch at 37 Hz, 45 Hz, 48 Hz, 55 Hz, and 61 Hz with a bandwidth of 25 cents and a limit of 20 harmonics with a 8.04 time stretch. In addition I used Sonar to do an 8 x time stretch of the original improvisation and added lexicon reverb. I repeated this track but used KT Drum Trigger as an effect substituting for the lexicon reverb. The field recording was edited and time stretched. The combined mass was then compressed, shaped and cropped.
