BB -- low blocks of S. in the S. modulated sine waves & wobbulator; filtered to even out intensities. low rate wobbulator swing Also inharmonic chords. Beriobashes - long, low, Slow cross from one to the other: same freq. band. All sounds outwardly static but for v.slow intensity vibrato (breathing rhythm), (4sec./c.) and inwardly moving, changing, by using wobbulator & also by changing filtering :. Audiobaton & PEUs. Coloured silences: coloured screens. Continuous sounds shaped into single notes for comment. Sounds for phrase pre-echo: to be comparable with speech quality, and to come naturally out of continuous sounds. Movement of sounds within static surface obtained by beats, wobbbulator, altering filtering & by several mobius loops running tog., faded in & out at joints.
from slowed down sounds, inharmonic cymbal, bell, echo plate Main technique for organising long continuous sounds: 3 mobius loops, v. long, with long fades. If necessary, work at double speed `roof' over basic low sounds - high shafts of colour & cont, high dreamy sound. dawn plain sound words: colour, stained glass windows, sunlight, coloured dreams, clouds etc. being chased - along corridors, down stairs, across fields falling breathing-heartbeat. pillow, sun murmuring voices - long mixes, voices out of nothing
