Everything But Signal

Everything but Signal uses solely found sounds of the internet and signals of communication within our digital infrastructure. It reflects on the forms of media that we consume and inhabit, i.e. from traditional mass media to social media. The composition aims to transform and arrange the intense sounds of social media notifications to arrive at a new perception of these materials. “The term marks a perceptive reality of sound as such, as distinguished from the modes of its production and transmission," Schaeffer said about acousmatics. "The new phenomenon of telecommunications and the massive diffusion of messages exists only in relation to and as a function of a fact that has been rooted in human experience from the beginning: natural, sonorous communication.”

A Storm is Blowing From Paradise EP

[ Acting against God - the sound that explores the point atmospheric phenomena became deterministic occurrences ]

Imagining a sequence of weather narratives around the wind, Quantum Foam synthesises field recordings and deconstructs the audio into shuffle-able components open for a stochastic takeover.

A Storm is Blowing From Paradise boldly experiments with random modulation over the midi velocity of the drums to convey the degree of entropy of the chaotic atmosphere.

Colour of Noise EP

Through the act of searching harmonics amongst noises, Quantum Foam plays with metaphors of pattern recognition and signal processing in our sonic environment.

Colour of Noise incorporates sampling from natural and artificial found sounds, drifting between the frequency spectrum of ranging power spectral densities, i.e. white, pink, brown, grey, purple, and blue noises, mixing with the live tuning in of FM radio channels. To signify the arrival of the era of de-anthropocentric machine music in today’s world, extracts of the Futurist Manifesto of Luigi Russolo from 1913 “The Art of Noise” are revisited and articulated as a speech, as well as encoded in Morse signals.

Would You Not Recall How Your Heart Once Beat for an Ordinary Saturday Calmness 

HD audio, 9’59”

A sound piece created entirely from one source, which is the recording of my own heartbeat when I was 30. Subtractive synthesis is applied to take the source signal to generate the whole piece. Vibrations of heart movement drive through resonant filters and get pitched along improvisation at a meditative state.

Verdure engraved 2020(1) issue released October 2020. Delighted to be part of this project curated by Jez Riley French along with some great visual and sound artists based in London, Glasgow, Berlin, Tokyo and Lisbon.
