soundtrack : alternative echelons

Sound design for alternative echelons by Amy Pickles. alternative echelons is a research project to challenge colonial occupation and corporate, capitalist listening.

The sound was generated through a self oscillating reverb module unit on a eurorack synthesiser. Achieved through no input, self patching, the recording is a re-edited live improvisation. As the work centres around the British listening station at Dhekelia in Cyprus, experimentation with no-input feedback mixing seemed relevant. A sinister acoustic aesthetic is then contrasted against the sunny warm scenes of Cyprus, in which digital surveillance is being orchestrated at a global level.

This is an ongoing collaboration with Amy Pickles the final work yet to be finalised.
