Disquiet Junto 0312 Amplify/Magnify

Some weeks the Junto directions fly out of my mind soon after I start recording. This was one of those weeks.

The exploration of the difference between 'amplification' and 'magnification' was straightforward and can be heard in the first and second 30 seconds.

My idea was to use a diaphragm microphone to amplify a quieter sound, then use a contact microphone as I've described them as having an effect like a microscope.

The source here is a candelabra that I liked the sound of enough to buy at an opp shop.

Then the remaining two minutes go off on a tangent, as I repitch and add reverb to create a gamelan-like effect.

I suppose the reverb does kinda invert the idea of magnification but making it sound more distant.
