CETACEAN HALLUCINATION (or, What Did the Whale Dream?)
Some of the technology used in the recording includes: an HTC One cell phone (apps including Etherial Dialpad, PocketBand and Electrum Drum machine), a Nord Electro 2, a Nebulophone by Bleep Labs (thank you Aaron G Parker!), ProTools 8LE and Adobe Audition.
The piece is both a continuation and a departure from the JJ vs the Digital Whale song cycle. It discards the moral component of the story and replaces it with the imagined psychedelic viewpoint of the whale. The five and a half movements roughly correspond to events described in the first book of Jonah.
This piece is not for everyone! The video uses intense strobes, psychedelic patterns and other effects which may cause nausea, headaches and/or the rethinking of life choices.
Thanks for listening!
