Volume up… Over the last week, Kris Slyka has been undertaking an intervention in Minute/Year, adding seven layers of sound, in series, from Monday, 12. August, through to yesterday evening (Sunday, 18. August). The seven separate one-minute performances are based around guitar drones, loops, and e-bow tones, and they all build on each other through the sound-layering action of Minute/Year, creating a single outcome spread over different recordings on subsequent days.


The video above shows some brief excerpts of how it all looked — and here is the grid of the resulting spectrogram images that were created.

The week-long structure of the intervention also means that the whole recording neatly fills up the most recent episode of the Minute/Year podcast. So check your podcast app for the latest (or if you’re not subscribed yet then search in your podcast app for “minute year” and you’ll find it). And else take a look at www.minuteyear.com to hear and see all the individual recordings and spectrogram images that were created as a result.
