Recovering no.1
Instrumentation: Fixed Media

Recovering no.1 is one of a series of pieces I intend to create using a particular set of sounds. While working on a project last year I accidentally deleted an entire folder of sound files that I needed. In a moment of panic I purchased a file recovery program and ran it on my hard-drive. In addition to the files that I needed, it somehow recovered 14GB of random sound files. Most of these are noises, probably from data that was originally part of some other file type. I've kept this fascinating collection and will use it to make many little pieces over the next year.

Watch out, it's noisy...
