here’s a clip from something i put together this afternoon, the entirety of which can be found on my website, under “sounds,” titled “electroacoustic purrs.”
the video is from a 1947 film called “Private Life of a Cat” by Alexander Hammid and Maya Deren.
the audio was a study on a new small-scale setup i’m using, recorded in one take onto cassette. in playback, there were some imperfections translated into the audio. in listening (before i found the video), i thought they sounded like purrs, so how perfect (passing over the low-hanging pun) that i would find this video!
