turning of the sun inside out (Melodyne recomposition / acousmatic)

turning of the sun inside out is a recomposition of James Bailey’s Turning of the Sun that was accomplished by a very original set up. What I did to his original was stretch the fairly percussive track into something more ambient and rearrange the resulting lines before and after applying Melodyne’s adaptive Just Intonation. The result is quite different from the original and has become this consonant / dissonant tug of war ambient drone-ish piece.

James’ description of his original is as follows: “Contact mic into a little battery amp set to feedback level and turntable set in motion. There’s also some sounds of me moving around in a chair.” The rig is pictured below.
