How It Was Made: When blocks of ice on liquid hit a resonant surface (such as glass or mug), I hear clear chime-like sound. This sonic experience is enhanced with amplitude-triggered synthetic tones. Whenever an ice cube hits the glass, the sound is picked up by the contact microphone and it triggers an electronic tone with randomized pitch.
How it was made:Sound of two metronomes clicking in different BPM is fed to the computer. It acts an amplitude envelope (think of a gate plug-in) for an algorithmically generated harmonic progression in e minor.
