		^live audio modulation

an accident by r a d i o q u a l i a + farmers manual

<<< part of Kunstradio's Immersive Sound installation

Bregenz Festival, Austria

July 11 - August 20, 1998 >>>

	"Supposing for instance, that the fundamental relations of pitched
sounds in the science of harmony and of musical composition were
susceptible ... to expressions and adaptions, the engine might compose
elaborate and scientific pieces of music of any degree of complexity or
						Ada Lovelace

gl^ is a sound robot constructed via a series of scientific errors
by r a d i o q u a l i a (Australia) and farmers manual (Austria).
gl^ is composed of a collection of virtual turbines which allow it
to compose reticulated sound.

gl^ absorbs the authored sound of a spectrum of variously animated
and inert vectors and reconstructs this input into a randomised audio
composite.  The resulting compound is being beamed into a low-friction
structure in Bregenz, Austria.  The Immersive Sound scale location is being
monitored by an assembly of technicians variously aligned with the
broadcast entity, Kunstradio.

Remote engineering teams from r a d i o q u a l i a and farmers manual
regularly monitor the magnitude of periodic dynamic motion and gl^'s
conversions of velocity signal.  gl^'s machine housing in Adelaide,
Australia allow it to be contained within a physical structure, while
permitting its interaction with a complex network of telecommunications
equipment.  The resulting interaction allows the gl^'s mutations to
serve as the source of a phase signal which can be wiretapped via the
following channel:

Irregular electrical conductivity and a noise component in the output
signal detected by the online probe system, has deduced that significant
anomalies of an auditory nature are occurring within the gl^
instruments.  Despite anechoic conditions in the machine housings, this is
thought to be resulting from destabilised sound pressure generated by
armies of tiny black ants trailing across the kitchen floor.  These
creatures keep coming back to correct their errors, never making the same
mistakes again.  The gl^ appears to have developed electret
microphonic capabilities, calibrating these reverberations and
incorporating them into the range of frequencies reproducible within the
automaton's audio framework.

Permanent monitoring will be required to standardise the mutations of
gl^  If the Entomological Frequency Interference (EFI) does not
improve, r a d i o q u a l i a and farmers manual may have to discontinue
the mechanism.

In the following weeks, local (spot) magnetic emissions on the
circumference of the shaft surface may be affected the by following
