Floppy Disk. Available in red, green, blue or yellow. Contains a GIF
and a RTF file.
Each stereo audiofile consists of 24 seconds of white noise. The files
were converted into the Microsoft Windows formats,
CCITT-Alaw and Microsoft ADPCM, with a sampling rate of 5HZ. The extremely
low sampling rate allow only frequencies
half the sampling rate to be heard. As the content is infrasonic no
sound should be heard.
However, playing back the files with the compatible software, a sucession
of audible clicks can be heard.
The software translates the transition from a zero DC postion to a given
sample point. This playback 'error' create
complex rythems derived from the random nature of the pure white noise
content. The audio will appear to be repeating
itself over and over, but it in fact constantly changing randomly. In
addition to this, the very low sampling rates results
in a time-scaling of the audio.
Each 24 second file is scaled up to 24 hours, resulting in a total of
48 hours of playing time.
Audio constructed 2008.
