Rompighiaccio Destiny

by Sammartano



Sammartano - "Rompighiaccio Destiny"
C10 single sided - Canto 11

"Rompighiaccio Destiny" is an auto generated composition resulted by the random interactions of two different tape recorders left to play and mixed without any external intervention except for some subtile variations of equalization, pitch and modulation through a delay used in effect send.

"We have an increasing desire in any case to get firm ground under our feet. The floe has been a good friend to us, but it is reaching the end of its journey, and it is liable at any time now to break up and fling us into the unplumbed sea."

text from SOUTH, the story of Shackleton’s last expedition 1914-17: chapter III, Escape from the ice.
