A sound created specifically for the Continuum-5 mini-dare: Symetric-sounds.
I started playing with a simple idea: use only a simple synthesized sound containing only a Triangular wave. Envelope, echo (delay) and pitch variations allowed. Nothing else.
I created a number of such sounds in Reason using the Thor synth. Then I rendered them to wav samples and loaded them up in Audacity where I was allowed only to perform 3 types of operations: overlaying copies of the sound with reversed copies of itself (allowed to move these relative to each other), reverse portions of the sound and reverse the stereo channels.
I experimented around looking for interesting effects (mostly phasing effects) and the interplay between the pitch variations between the normal and reversed versions of the sound.
