A strange sonic experiment featuring some echo FX and a PC microphone/speaker feedback loop. When I created it, it reminded me of what I thought a “radio storm” might sound like, hence the name.
Kyoto Nights was created using an innovative technique for creating freeform music – a program called ColorMusic (written by Shinichiro Hirama). This program translates the movement of a mouse over contrasting colors in an image file, and converts the result to music in the form of a midi sequencer file. The raw source for Kyoto Nights came from using a screenshot from the game Oni, and then edited and processed with different instruments in Melody Assistant.
