Episode 45: "Your Health, Mitre-Jointed (Part II)" by Unheard Sound Collective's Pulsewidth
Ernie Dulanowsky deploys modular synthesis systems to create organic, even naturalistic sound work. The central refrain is a two note tonal buzz that never quite asserts itself clearly above the churning murk of filter sweeps and buzzing waves. Bell tones resonate across the grey noise floor like a disheveled wind-chime. There’s an icy humidity to this track in particular that is evocative of a particular space and time of year - an abandoned gas station on the edge of a small town just off the highway, 1am, windy, and the temperature dropped from just above freezing to -25c in the past 12 hours.
