Making Sure Technology Fails

I'm interested in what happens when machines break down, and this is a cursory examination of that aesthetic. It will probably eventually be expanded into something larger.

Process geek info: This was made by playing with a delay object in Max/MSP and trying to make it do things it's not supposed to. The source sounds were sequenced in Logic and ran through Soundflower.

Feels like my brain at the end of the day.

I like the way it sound like things collapse out of sync and then rotate back in.

Interesting how some of the static elements almost sound like a koto drum. Sounds like it could be part of the Logan's Run score. Cool track.

Have you listened to the Quebectronic or So Young and So Cold comps? This sounds like the Francophone electro.

(It's weird that technological failure can sound so nostalgic—I've been surrounded by this aesthetic my entire conscious life.)
