The first step was to record different pianos, chimes, bells, water drums and a ‘regenrohr’ via a sony m-100mc. i then worked on these sounds at home with various effects, pitched the signal using a tascam multitracker and through this process built both of the tracks on the record – tonmuseum and pendulum. i focused on the drowning qualities of certain sounds that emerge if you slow one recorded audio sequence down to a maximum of shifted time, thus expanding the natural sound waves. i also tried to preserve the eerie quality that a piano or bell gets, when decelerated through a recording.
Both tracks were finished in early december 2014.
