Icelandic experimental musician Bjarni Gunnarsson, who has released from Granny in the past, will release in January 2023.American experimental/noise labelCD released from Flag Day Recordings.

Contains 6 tracks of collage noise and collage drone using the UPIC system.

4-sided digipak, shrink specifications.

The following is a commentary by the writer himself.

"The works contained here are the result of my research on database-driven reconstructions based on sound analysis. All sound sources were created using a graphical computer system called the UPIC system (Iannis Xenakis). , where the user draws shapes, waveforms, and modulations on a "page" to form a composed or composed sound.

This material was recorded between September 2006 and March 9 at the CCMIX laboratory in Paris.These recordings use SNDArchive (github.com/bjarnig/SNDArchive), a newly developed system that can reconstruct and combine sonic parts based on different dimensions discovered by an offline analysis process. It was realized by

Sounds are analyzed and loaded into a database.They form an archive that can be queried.Music is born through the process of interpreting sounds and sound fragments, transforming them based on their characteristics, and developing synthesized sounds.The idea was to create a way to engage with sound archives in new ways, to look at them from another angle and to reveal unknown aspects of material that has already been infused with meaning.

Artist Statement:

"The pieces combined here have emerged as an outcome of my research into database-driven reconstructions based on sound analysis. All the source material has been created with the UPIC system (Iannis Xenakis) a graphical computer system where users draw shapes, waveforms, and modulations on 'pages' that form a composition or composed sound.

The material was recorded between September 2006 and March 2007 at the CCMIX institute in Paris. None of those recordings ever made it to a completed work until now, through the use of a newly developed system, SNDArchive (github.com/bjarnig/SNDArchive), that allows to recompose and combine sound parts based on different dimensions discovered through offline analysis processes.

Sounds are analyzed and read to a database. They form an archive that can be queried. The music then emerges through processes that interpret the sound or sound segments, transforming them or developing synthetic sound based on their properties. Engaging with sound archives in novel ways, to review them from a different angle, or to reveal previously unknown aspects of material already loaded with meaning."
