Mystified With Rebekkah Hilgraves: An Off-Key Relationship [treetrunk 519]

What happens when two volcalists are in key with themselves, but noticeably out-of-key with one another? I used a generative system and the voices of myself and Rebekkah Hilgraves to illustrate the sonic results of such a de-tuning.

Please note that Thomas and Rebekkah get along just fine in the real world.

Mystified With Various Artists- Constants [treetrunk 516]

Thomas of mystified wanted to try a generative mix of quite a number of “Constant” pieces. “Constant” drones were pieces created by artists with the intention of making the most minimal sound that was still listenable. Artist included in these generative mixes include:

Digital Mass
Philip Wilkerson
Stephen Philips
The Ghost Between The Strings
Mister Vapor
Scott Lawlor
K.M. Krebs
Tribe Of Astronauts
At any point, a listener might be hearing up to 24 layers of different Constant track excerpts.

Mystified- Seattle [treetrunk 510]

After a 3-year hiatus, mystified is back, and I am using a technique called “Blind Mixing”. I create mixing consoles using code that pulls in random sounds, and I mix them blind. It calls for a lot of  improvisation.
