This piece makes use of a new sound synthesis and processing algorithm based on extremely high order allpass filters. These filters have been designed by modulating the group delay trajectory of a unit pulse with FM and AM sinusoids, and the frequency-dependent time delays introduced by these filters creates a variety of strange sounds. Nostalgic concrete material, sourced from educational childrens' television, is processed with these allpass filters and spatialized around the listener. The visuals for the piece are a single still image, processed with the same allpass filters heard in the music. Throughout the piece, you may recognize the voice and visage of a notable personality emerging from the cacophony.
