Limiting raw material. Preset sources and sound families.

The Door Study was the first in this series to have strict conditions on its source material. I made everything out of the short sample of a door opening and closing. On all the previous pieces there were no specific restrictions and sound materials were being collected freely, with just a main concept in mind. Actually, part of the discipline was to incorporate as many different sounds as possible in one organic whole. For each of the following pieces I have worked on a very specific recording or sound family at a time, as an opportunity to look into ways of producing a wider sonic palette out of limited source material and thus researching more systematically a range of processing techniques, as well as a range of relevant structuring approaches.
