New album out on Bandcamp! Compositions with pure tones

A series of very abstract compositions, for which the source material was generated through additive synthesis with pure sine tones. The pitch, envelope and volume of 100 oscillators was controlled via algorithms to create a wide variety of sounds and sonic evolutions. A selection of those sounds was then further processed and combined in several layers in a more intuitive way.

Best listened to on good quality speakers or headphones on moderate volume. Contains a lot very high and low frequencies which will not reproduce correctly on cheap speakers like the ones builtin in laptops or smartphones.


The source material for this piece are several field recordings i made over the years that i didn’t find good enough to present as field recording on their own, but which still did contained a lot of interesting sonic material. I started off with the idea of making a collage with the most appealing sounds from the field recordings, but ended up processing them quite heavily, so not much of the original sounds can be recognized in the end. Still the natural origin of the sources is reflected in an organic feel to the sounds, and their overall shapes determine the structure of the piece.
