Music for Noise Reduction
12" Vinyl

Product Description

*Includes download code redeemable from the label* Another treat from Asthmatic Kitty's series of searching, experimental Library-style records. Effacer is John McCaig, veteran of electronica imprints such as Neo Ouija and Benbecula and also known as a professional studio engineer. 'Music For Noise Reduction' is concerned with ghostly synth resonance, sketching wispy, watery synth music from the after-imprints of FX applications and making for a strangely compelling listen. Read on for further explanation** "This album was inspired by the commercial work Effacer does in audio mastering. Effacer figured that different noise noise reduction processes and audio restoration tools that are usually used to remove clicks/noises from track could be used to exaggerate different effect in music. He started by taking a sound with reverb, then, using the dry version of that same sound, minus the reverb, and using that as the noise print for the noise reduction algorithm. Thus by removing the source sound, a ghostly sound (reverb) would be left behind. Effacer came up with a formula for this to create further sounds and textures: (source sound + effect) - (source sound) = artefact of effect. By putting these sounds together into tracks and adding several years, these experiments resulted in an album.
