about walkthrough piece source
This piece explores examples of cracked commercial music software, made to aid synthesis, sequencing and recording of sound, in their most elemental form: data. At this level the software becomes amorphous due to the commonality of the language; a string of 1's and 0's is open to interpretation through the lens of any file type. It is this amorphous property of digital data that is utilised within this piece to transform music software from tool for the creation and organisation of sound to sound itself.
