Earlier this week I continued developing the prototype LOAM software by writing the basic code for the Angelystor application. Angelystor is a piece of music based around the folklore of the St. Digain’s church, where on Hallowe’en the voice of the spirit Angelystor may be heard pronouncing the names of those in the parish who will die in the coming year… Angelystor imagines a night, from dusk to dawn, in the Llangernyw churchyard.
The app allows you to relocate a multi-track version of the Angelystor to any location (ideally a churchyard) and to use your environment as a virtual mixer. It should be available to download by the end of the month.
The music itself grew out of couple of rough and ready field-recordings made by Layla, as detailed here. It was produced by myself with some help from Briony Yorke and Layla. You can have a listen to a rough mix of the ‘fixed’, non-locative version below! [Edit: now HERE]
