about

ʞu¡0ɹʞS is, well, yours truly (Rebekkah Hilgraves), and is a relatively new ambient and experimental project. This track was built on two field recordings that I’ve been wanting to use for years. The first one (the strange sounds that open the track) is from a very windy day — so windy that it made the front door of the studio howl. I stretched and processed the howl until it became a long, oscillating drone, and then added another field recording, this one of wind and atmospheric sounds in the Mojave desert north of Los Angeles. The wind across the microphone, through window screens, and around poles added subtle textures to the track. Finally, I recorded and manipulated my own voice, playing with formants (the sounds made by shaping the mouth in certain ways to emphasize different overtones).

You’ll hear a recurring musical theme, which includes the only electronic instrument added to the mix: strings whispering snatches of the melody from the final movement of Brahms’ third symphony, along with me humming phrases and spinoffs — because the howling doors suggested that particular progression in my mind, which became ghosts of musical memories in the final creation.
