We Can't Tell You That

Disquiet Junto Project 0083: R#d#ct#d
This week’s project is an open-ended exploration of surveillance and graphic notation.

The page at the following URL is the score that you will perform:


You can use any instrumentation you choose, just no source audio for which you cannot yourself claim ownership or fair use.

Background: The image is page 8 of recently declassified documents related to NSA collection of telephone metadata records.

My Comments: In keeping in the theme of this project I wanted to deal with the concept of words that are fully present but obscured. I used a segment of the Sunday, May 26, 2013 episode of the Music Manumit Podcast interviewing C. Reider for my voices ( www.musicmanumit.com/2013/05/c-reid…t-podcast.html ). The podcast audio is used under a CC-BY-SA license and contains the voices of Tom Ray, Doug Whitfield and C. Reider. I used Supercollider to granulate and mutate the voices until they were indecipherable and added some other sounds to build a framework for the voices.
