Gated Music

Hear music made using noise gates on this New Sounds program.  How does it work?  Basically, when open, a gate allows you to hear the sound behind it, but when closed, you don’t.  (Here’s a handy tutorial about gates.) Listen to music from A. Leroy (Dick Connette) as he takes a recording of a Mardi Gras Indian song and through the use of gating, turns it into a rhythm track.  Also, hear Joshua Fried’s musical shoes, as played with drumsticks in the service of Linda Fisher’s piece, “Big Mouth,” featuring cartoon music and sound effects, from a live performance recorded back in 1990.
