A Noisome Pestilence Hugh Le Caine

A Noisome Pestilence (1958) (2:05) is built from narrow-band noise organized into tape loops containing short rhythmic motifs using the Multi-track. There is a surprising degree of timbral vibration within the piece; the characteristics of the sounds sometimes change quite dramatically.
