Audio construction:
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.
