sound composition for microphones, 4-track and micromoog...

wrn-32 die weisse rose netzwerk 1994

in 1993, i recorded these tracks with the vague idea of using them as sources... recording on one mono track at a time, with my tascam portaone... starting with a single microphone in a window of my house in ferndale, michigan... picking up thunderstorm sounds, the neighbor's van backfiring in the driveway, and late one night, a car driving down my street with a very flat tire... when one track on the tape was filled, i flipped the tape over and recorded the next track... i filled out the tape with synthesizer experiments i made as i tested out the micromoog that had been passed along to me by friends... it was found in a dumpster, was believed to be in non-working condition... i took it apart, cleaned it, and when i flipped the voltage input switch, it worked... for a long time i used the original source tape as a sleep aid... i played it in a stereo boombox next to my bed, and fell asleep to the combination of sounds... listening backwards and forwards, with the accidental juxtapositions lulling me... at some point i began to think of it as a sound work in and of itself... not deliberate, but it was subjected to unconscious deliberation... so i made various mixes of it... the earliest mixes i have found date from february and march of 1997, but the release date and catalog number i assigned to it are from 1994... perhaps for the interval in between it only existed in my mind... as did so much... that's still true...
