The etude is based on random generated signals that are used to control Function-Generators, filters and control the rise, sustain and decay behavior of the audible wave-forms.

Story behind the song
Synthesis Etude; A study for experiments with analogue random devices in BEA5. Duration: 5.57 min Explored Generators: * Random Envelope Generator * Pseudo Random Noise Generator * Random Pulse-Generator * Tendency-Mask Generator * Various Function-Generator * Tone-Burst Generator * T-Ramp About. The etude represents a study of analog random devices in BEA5. It contains quadrophonic recordings of five patches that are documented here. The sounds that are appearing in the etude are carefully selected and cut in-between the random pulses, and composed together, due to the characteristics of the spectra. The etude is based on random generated signals that are used to control Function-Generators, filters and control the rise, sustain and decay behavior of the audible wave-forms. The patches follow more or less the same concepts, but are changed and extended during the progress. Each of the patches are representing their own sound characteristics. None of the recordings are transformed or transposed. What can be heard are direct results from the explored patches. Often, the recordings of the patches are overlapped in the structure. Wave-shapes and Noises. The original recordings were made with different settings and wave-forms, but parameters remained (more or less) unchanged during recording. All-though they were created with random devices, the recordings were repetitive, depending on the time settings of the ramps and envelopes. It was easy to cut them in-between the silent spaces; in-between ramps and envelopes. After cutting and making a selection of interesting sounds, the audio-files were re-imported in the digital sequencer. Trying-out different combinations resulted in this final presentation. No mathematical formula or other physical, graphical phenomena is used to create the sequence, and so, one could state that the narrative structure is intuitive. Some synthesis floats easily into another, other noises are bursting thru each-other, or following. What is signing the etude are fast noise attacks, and filters following the same time-ramps. It was very nice to work with inverted saw-tooth ramps, that could be exciting to a listener, due to its sudden behavior. The Pseudo Random Noise from the HP device is signing the mood of the etude. It was pleasant to work with it in combination with a rise & decay filter. It is a way to smoothening the noise, and use it to control different generators. Its behavior is chaotic next to the linear ramps controlling clean sine-wave-forms.
