We are afraid to care too much, for fear that the other person does not care at all.
— Eleanor Roosevelt (via expeditum)
You take a sound, any sound, record it & then change its nature by a multiplicity of operations. You record at different speeds, you play it backwards, you add it to itself over & over again. You adjust filters, echoes, acoustic qualities, you combine segments of magnetic tape. By these means & many others, you can create sounds which no one has ever heard before.
— BBC radiophonic sound experiment from 1957
