This track was created as part of the At Water's Edge "Water Transformations" challenge (you can find the full release at radiospiral.bandcamp.com/album/water-transformations), and consists of sounds you find in a kitchen: ice in a crystal wine glass, boiling water, water from the faucet sprayer, with some voice layered over it, and all is layered and processed beyond recognition. The sounds that resemble a soft-mallet cymbal roll were the ice cubes being dropped into a glass, then altered using software effects: vocoder, reverb, reverse, selective EQ, and paulstretch at varying rates. The result was a happy accident, so this track definitely qualifies as “experimental” ambient. The text is “Blessed ordinariness. Peace in the home. Serenity in the kitchen.”
This challenge was to find water sounds and do something interesting with them. The water could be in any form (solid, liquid, vapor), and the only restriction was that it had to be actual water, not synthetic water-like sounds. Otherwise, fair game!
Peace in the home.
Serenity in the kitchen.
