‘Variations of a Convoluted Voice 2’ is built using a single recorded sample of a male voice, singing a drone in A.

The voice was passed through a convolutional synthesizer, which I built in Max-MSP. By definition, the process of convolution involves the digital multiplication of each sample in one waveform with each-and-every sample in another waveform, then adding the resultant arrays to form a new string of samples. The product is a sound that resembles its parent sounds, almost as though the first sound is ‘playing’ the second (Roads, 2008. p. 419-432).
In the case of ‘Variations of a Convoluted Voice 2’, the voice was convolved with a drum loop, resulting in a pulsating effect, which was then slowed using a sampler, also built in Max-MSP.

Some of it is weird, some of it not so much. Either way, I hope you dig my creations.
