The piece was conceived without a score, using tracks
recorded for the composition Sugar High. The
voice here is pushed to extremes in relation to human
capacity. Underlying the entire piece there is a vocal
arpeggio doubled and stretched out from a couple of
seconds to over five minutes. The process of 'stretching
out' an audio object exposes a certain deception in
the digital manipulation of sound. If the audio track
were acoustically stretched the result would be different
then the one created by the algorithm used by the software.
Here, the object is lengthened by 'filling in' the wave
between the peaks resulting in a whole new sound. However,
something of the human quality remains in this object,
which emerges like a long moan. The moan informs the
harmony of the vocal arpeggios pulsating above it. Some
arpeggios were sampled in their entirety and later manipulated.
Some of the vocal material was spliced up to create
short, percussive, sound snippets that are far removed
in their character that the original vocal source vanished
in the digital domain.
