This is an experiment starting with 8 etherogeneous electronic tracks composed by Wolfgang Dorninger, released as an album. The project starts from then on, dissecting the music with different methodologies. The complete title becomes 8K=8K+-(G)<>(A)<>(N), where G = Granular Modification, A = Analog and N = Net. The tracks are first reconstructed precisely with hardware and special software in lenght, pitch, speed and modulation (G). Then theyâ€™re played again through different custom cut 12″ (dubplates) with all their samples played simultaneously on 2 to 4 turntables and mixer filtered (A). Finally, the outcome of (G) and (A) feed other sound artists composing variations in nearly real time trough the net via the vst-plugin tubePlug. This tri-phased conceptual treatment dissect and reconstruct the initial sounds as they were fresh data, condensing a whole range of possibilities in three very symbolic and coded paths.
