Geiger Tree Canopy

NF: ‘I initially listened to the track to see if it provoked any imagery, themes or narratives within myself. I imagined huge trees towering above me as I walked through a forest. In contrast, I also imagined growth and mutation of nature which occurs when it is mediated by technology. I tried to imagine what untethered blooms of spores, disease, cancerous cells may figuratively sound in a radioactive world.

I used Ableton. I made extensive use of random pitch adjustment and detuning to make the musical environment feel 'alien'. Every noise which was made was included to be part of this ultra-fecund ecosystem.’
