Sine Studies 2

Sine Studies 2 is LOSCIL's continuation of the challenge set forth in Sine Studies 1—namely, to generate music derived from computer generated sine waves and no other sound source. Sine waves are perfectly pure units of synthesized sound, which alone contain no overtones and a somewhat unnatural sounding simplicity of spectral content. While their abstract purity in its rawest form can seem clinical, unnatural, synthetic and rather void of emotion, loscil takes it upon himself to morph, add, stretch, chop and beat the sine waves into submission, forcing them into shapes and combinations that resonate and attempt to connect with the ears in interesting ways. With "Pendulum," rhythm takes the forefront and arpeggiated sines are woven together to create overlapping patterns and forward momentum. "Serpens," draws more on harmony and gentle, slow moving chords that harken back to pipe organs and religious music.
