Saturated Highway Forest Death Psych Synth Panic, 2014

- compressed version, 3 seconds
- pop version, 4 minutes, 28 seconds

[add links to work here]

Saturated Highway Forest Death Psych Synth Panic is composed by capturing and mixing all music tagged as 'dark' that appears on my computer via internet sharing sites'

It proposes itself as a new genre, approaching (without ever touching) a collective generic distillation of TOTAL DARKNESS

The composition is ongoing, as new tracks appear and plug in.

The 3 second version is a condensed blast of dark. The pop version is expanded to the average length of the pop song in the 21st Century (so far), isolating the germ of dark and letting it spread.

This version is then re-tagged as Saturated Highway Forest Death Psych Synth Panic, and re-shared, where it plugs back in to the generic metadata system.

The work is part of a series using corporate music intelligence platform algorithms (e.g. The Echo's Nest on Spotify), and shared metadata, as composition devices.

More information to come.
