This record is a testimonial of early researches in quantum re-interpretation of previously existing audio material in a Eurorack modular environment.
To conduct these studies, we used 2 Eurorack modules: The Make Noise Morphagene and the Make Noise Mimeophon, surrounded by other more utilitarian modules (See full list at the end of this report).
The Morphagene, as described by its makers, is “a next generation tape and microsound music module that uses Reels, Splices and Genes to create new sounds from those that already exist. Search between the notes to find the unfound sounds.”
In other words, it can be considered as a modern tape machine which uses digital technology and allow to dive into sound at a particle level, and travel through it at the speed of electricity.
Our scientists carefully selected loops from 2 previously recorded but unused live-looping improvisations made with Ableton Live and VST instruments, and regrouped them in 2 “Reels”.
We will be referencing them as “Reel A” and “Reel B”. (We avoid giving actual names to our test subjects in order to prevent any attachement, which could influence the results of our studies)
Those 2 Reels were then used in the Morphagene as the only sound sources, to be played and looped live in the Mimeophon in a totally improvisational way.
The Mimeophon being another digital rendition of a tape machine, albeit one that allows to travel through time, it allowed our scientists to further manipulate and bend the layers of the sonic particles coming out of the Morphagene and experiment with the quantum entanglement of audio signals.
In order to maximize the concentration of improvisation and increase the general level of serendipity, our scientists exclusively operated each devices by hand. No sequencer or modulation devices were used.
These experiments resulted in 3 iterations of the exact same audio genetic material for each Reel, which as you’ll hear, ended up being different from each other despite having 100% of their genes in common.
We have no conclusion as of yet, but given the urgency of the situation, we are releasing the raw DATA publicly for our esteemed colleagues and anybody who might want, and be able, to help, to study and come to their own conclusions.
We, at K⏣LYDER, think that there is no more room for the petty attitudes of the last century: selfishness, toxic competition and greed. We believe that it’s not only high time, but now a matter of survival, for humanity to evolve toward its next evolution stage, characterized by collaboration, care and spirituality. (and we give a huge finger to Richard Dawkins).
We hope that you will make good use of this. The future of every living creatures on this planet depends on it.
Thank you very much for your attention.
