Breaking

This group of fragments is performed by dry breaking sounds and bartok pizzicato of strings. Phrases are created within a range and obscured through time pointers1 and time scaling,2 to make phrases less predictable. Sounds are not moving, but placed at random positions along sides of the space, like an orchestra surrounding the audience, with variable reverb types. The sounds are:

 

The scores have been used to generate results. Exact pitches are more relevant to the Bartok pizzicato than to the other sounds. Transpositions are done through FFT with time correction. To recreate these percussive sounds, window sizes are often made smaller than usual. This did not keep all sounds from getting blurred or inaudible.

 

Example 23: Breaking 8.

 

Example 24: Breaking 25.

 

Example 25: Breaking 74.
