Grains [disquiet0257] by Dave Dorgan

My piece for the Disquiet Junto project #0257. Make some noise.

– I choose to use granular synthesis to turn fairly normal sounds into something more like noise. I put five short clips into iDensity on an iPad, and then mangle the sounds. The five new sounds were recorded together with me manually changing the pitch of one of them. The result was put into Logic Pro, where I applied EQ to the whole thing. On a Bus, I put a HP filter, ValhallaRoom reverb and Logics Delay Designer. Essentially, the low end sound was not let into the Bus. EQ and mild compression with TD Kotelnikov were put on the Mix Bus – for the sake of time.
