about

This album is a musical interpretation of shardcore's Algo Incantations (www.shardcore.org). Many thanks to Eric for allowing me to use his work in this way.

The use of an algorithm to produce an incantation is intriguing, especially using the Necronomicon by 'Simon'. I've written more about the reasons behind this and the creation of this album on my blog: wp.me/p2ZLkE-2kv

The incantations were produced using the principle of 'the true will of the machine' which I've tried to carry across in the musical interpretation. This means I've chosen random presets for the synths and effects as much as possible, often using random midi pattern generators. I've also used synthesised voices, either the Ivona Android voice or various voices from Alter/Ego by Plogue.

The songs were recorded as one take live recordings in Sensomusic Usine Hollyhock II using a variety of VSTIs and effects:
Dust (Soundmorph)
Polygon; Convex (Glitchmachines)
Deelay (Hornet)
Teulfelsberg reverb (Balance Mastering)
Carbon Electra (Plugin Boutique)
Alter/Ego (Plogue)
DDLY Dynamic Delay (iZotope)
Ambience (Smartelectronik)
Homing Pad; Groove Steps (Hollyhock II)
Incipit (Inear Display)
Vortex Soundwaves (Sample Science)
Frostbite; Space Strip (Audiothing)
Tremolator (Sound Toys)
Enzyme CM (Humanoid Soundsystem)
Noisetar (Nusofting)

They were subsequently mastered in MuLab 7.2 using Neutron by iZotope.
