Is it really August already?! Time to roll out our next featured topic then!
When most people talk about “noise,” they’re referring to something that is distracting or detrimental, an interference if you will, to their ability to focus on something. We have that in audio; however, that’s only one definition of noise. in our world. We also have laboratory style noise…in the form of Pink and White. These forms of “noise” become a design tool…especially if you’re working in the world of subtractive synthesis.
This month, we’re going to pay attention to both varieties of noise: the distractions (and they’re not always of a sonic nature, mind you), and the putty that can become a design tool.
As always, we are open to…and encourage…guest contributions from the community. If you have something you’d like to share with your peers, please contact shaun [at] designingsound [dot] org. We’re working on something a little different for next month…and hope it will be a pleasant surprise.
