︎Restore electronic


︎Focus 焦点


Equipment: One 3.5mm audio cable, boss ns-2

Released by Hard Return (HR034)
Recorded on May 17, 2022, Beijing



The two tracks are roughly the same length and structure. Both are current noise generated by my touching a 3.5mm audio cable tip with right hand, maintaining two separate hand gestures (pinching and clutching) and holding it largely still. I had quite a cup of hot water before recording clutching, in which the intermittent mid-range frequencies were the sweat in my clenched hand, the shivering touched by the static had me moved a few times.

My idea is to stretch out a point of focus, psychedelically. The current swells and overloads in time, tightens. Something long and simple.


这两首曲目长度和结构大致相同。都是我用右手触摸一支3.5mm音频线头产生的电流噪音,分别维持两个手势(捏着和攥着),并基本保持不动。录制第二首前我喝了一大杯热水,其中,间断的中频是攥在手中的汗,触动静电的酥麻使我忍不住动了几下。

我想尽量将一个聚焦的点拉长,迷幻。电流在时间里膨胀过载,紧缩。一件简单且漫长的事。



︎Noise floor 底噪


Equipment: Yamaha MG82cx mixing board, Yamaha HS8 monitors

Recorded in home, Beijing, November 14, 2021
Released by bluescreen (bl10)
Mixed and mastered by Sun Yizhou in the January of 2022



When I work on audio at home, my monitors and mixing board always have some faint noise floor. I think it depends partly on dirty current noise, Chinese 50 Hz household AC, and dust inside the mixing board, maybe many other factors.Sometimes, I want to remove it, and sometimes I also listen to it. This periodic dryness fascinates me. It makes sense, I recorded it.

A lot of my electronic music compositions in the past two years have been related to no-input mixing boards, this time with only outputs. I used the my first mixing board, amplified noise floor. Some tracks use phantom +48V. L1-5 is the microphone aimed at the bass part of the recording, and H1-3 is the treble part. Equalization and compression of the audio, no other effects are processed and adjusted.

It may sound boring, but I like it.


当我在家里从事音频工作时,我的监听音箱和调音台总是有一些微弱的底噪。我想这部分取决于脏的家用交流电,以及调音台内数不清的灰尘。当然还有许多其他因素。我总想把它消除掉,但有时也会去听它。这种周期性的干燥让我着迷,好像放大了一些微小的颗粒。于是,我记录了它。

在过去的两年里,我的很多电子音乐创作都与无输入调音台有关,这次只是连接了输出。我找出了我的第一块调音台,打开增益,放大噪点。有些曲目使用了幻象供电+48V。L1-5是将麦克风对准录音监听音箱的低音喇叭,H1-3则是高音单元。我对音频进行均衡和压缩,没有其他效果的处理和调整。

这听起来可能很无聊,但我喜欢这样。
