Gravitational Altitude Correction:

In composing Gravitational Altitude Correction aka G.A.C., I wanted to explore the granular synthesis tools within GraceCl. I created a program that would process source files so that the resulting sound file would contain multiple and differing layers of granular synthesis, amplitudes, and spatial locations. I then assembled these sound files within the ProTools environment and subjected them to further concrete techniques. In addition to synthesis, the work contains many unaltered source files that I used to reinforce certain gestures.
My compositional intention for
G.A.C. was to impart a sense of movement similar to freefall. I tried to capture the constant tension and uncertainty that would be created by this motion. In this composition, I made use of semi-static sounds and constant spatial movement to recreate both height and speed of a theoretical freefall.
