Auric Blade
Sound Recording

Auric Blade (2018) was created using a custom software synthesizer instrument tuned in just intonation rations with a fundamental tuning of D – 292 HZ. The software synthesizer instrument was performed through a transducer activated banjo head and a Tibetan singing bowl, in so doing the software synthesizer instrument takes on timbre and material characteristics of these acoustic instruments. There were ten recorded passes of each acoustic instrument receiving unique tuning ratios making a total of 20 tracks. In addition, there are two tracks of low frequencies 36.50 HZ and 51.07 HZ that were recorded directly from the software synthesizer instrument. There are two additional tracks of the banjo D string performed with a harmonic Ebow.
