The "Sounds For Urban Discourse" sample packs are sounds I processed from a collection that dates back to my years of living at the apartment at Brannon and Chippewa. Utensils, tools, water, metal, porcelain-- recordings were made of various sources in this place. Years later I shared the processed versions of these sounds. BERTHELOT was an artist I wanted to work with, as I enjoy his music and like his submission for the "Particular Streams Remixes 3" compilation. He has done an incredible piece using the "Discourse" samples-- it is about 40 minutes long, and, interestingly, contains many different movements-- each with its own sound set, but each neatly fitting into the whole. I would like to think that my years spent in poverty fit into my life, as a whole, as well in some strange way.
Musician BERTHELOT was challenged to create a longorm piece using mystified's "Urban Discourse" samples. Here is the outstanding result. The sounds were originally gathered in Mystified's low-rent apartment in South Saint Louis, then processed using random effects chains. Special thanks to BERTHELOT.
