My project group was the music concrete group, a style of music which depicts sounds through distortion of either instrumental, natural, or vocal sounds. With this idea I have devised the distortion of these three mediums to evoke different connotations other than the original but not necessarily the antithesis. Keeping some original traits from the original will help to keep familiarity and relevance while also juxtaposing the difference at the same time.
I have recorded my own voice, using recorders and uploading to reaper, and manipulated it 4 different ways. Trying to make a sound with connotations of happiness (soft, light,airy,harmonic) ,sadness (slow,melodic,resonating,low), and other variations of feelings. Similarly I have done this with a natural and instrumental sound and tried to see how well the which medium transfers connotations easiest.
Taking the project forward I would like to maybe try to undistort manipulated sounds so they are back to their original state. This would take time because I would have to find all the extremities of the sound as well as toggling many forms of distortion and tweaking them to find the original.
