E107 Age Artist Showcase 2013-12-19
Summary: Age is the "horizontal sound composition process" of Josh Gumiela and Luke Rainey, and it's based around a very innovative technique. One artist presents a sound. The other samples that sound and alters it in some way – perhaps speeding it up, slowing it down, degrading it, or chopping it up. The first artist then samples the altered sound, the other artist then samples the altered altered sound, and so on. Soon the sound becomes unrecognizable and the improv progresses in an indeterminate direction, much like the pointer of a Ouija board.
