Stitch/Strata

Stitch/Strata was composed using audio descriptors and Python scripts to carve out groups of samples from a corpus of vocal segments. These segments are drawn from Sage Pbbbt's daily sketches. The first performance was at the 2019 Electric Spring Festival, where I was generously offered the opportunity to diffuse it over a 3D array of speakers.

The code for this project was mostly made in an ad-hoc fashion and is largely untraceable. Nonetheless it is available here for the brave.

If you're interested in learning more about the code and sounds I wrote it about it in my thesis: https://harnessing.xyz/projects/stitch-strata
