untitled mcalpine is a treated field recording. The original recording was of an accidental aeolian harp created by wind blowing through scaffolding on a construction site in Footdee, Scotland.
As beautiful as the original untreated recording was, I was curious about how it would sound if I filtered out everything except for the sounds of the aeolian harp. The result was this track,which made its rounds across the internet and was used on several other artists' albums. It was eventually released on bremsstrahlung records in 2005 and is being re-released here now.
Please note that the track contains a slight bit of distortion due to the extreme processing involved. This was impossible to edit out without significantly altering the track. I felt that it was beautiful, nonetheless, and deserved 'to live' even if slightly flawed.
