Scott Wilson
Müllmusik
An electroacoustic music piece derived from discarded and recycled data. Types of material used include: News audio from CNN.com (election coverage, commentary etc.); audio files found in the trash on various computers, or abandoned on a server; any computer file (i.e. Word documents, applications, etc.) given an audio header and played as a soundfile (e.g. a section based upon "playing" the Windows kernel, which some would argue is "Müll" as well); donations from composers and soundartists of unused material; combinations of the above. One section is based on a literal interpretation of Kevin Austin1s term "Photoshop Music" i.e. using Photoshop as a sound processor by altering images which are then played as audio, or converting audio to images for processing with PS plug-ins. In performance the piece plays at revealing the hidden sources of the sounds. This "secret" content makes itself known at different moments in the piece.
