Disquiet Junto Project 0072: Domestic Score
Quoting Marc Wiedenbaum “This week’s project is based on field recordings of wherever it is that you live. The goal is to produce a relaxing score to your domestic life by employing noises that intrude on that life.”

I went several different ways in creating this, but ultimately all was created with a (hastily repaired) doorbell, a noisy transformer for the burglar alarm, and the sound of birdsong through the open window, each of which very much defines the background sound of my home (without its inhabitants who usually bring with them the sound of televisions blaring).
My doorbell is pretty strident, so I had to blur it sonically using Max for Live’s Granulator. Similarly the transformer was also processed with Granulator to give it some harmonic content. The birdsong (and the drone of distant traffic) was left pretty much as it was recorded, but faded in throughout the track.
