Making of the track
Both the “music” & “speech” elements were composed using our chance-based systems and rules – all of which determined the outcome of the track.
Every decision, from; time signature, bpm, to what instruments were allowed to be used, were decided by the roll of a die, the flip of a card, the toss of a coin, and many other randomising strategies to take the entire creative process out of our direct control.
Intelligence gaps ended up sounding like a crazy roller-coaster ride through the offbeat world of fast paced electronica and IDM
Making of the video
The visualisations for Intelligence Gaps were made entirely in Ableton using ‘Ganz Graf Mod X’ Max for Live plugin, developed by Synnack – http://www.synnack.com/
Each stem was sent through the Ganz Graf Mod X plugin – Each visualisation was screen-recorded – All recordings were layered up in Final Cut Pro 7.
Then we took a nap.
