so i had a disk image of a program, which i mounted in toast titanium, and for some reason it came up as an audio cd. out of curiosity i saved the hour-and-a-half long aiff file, which turned out to be filled with really interesting sounds.
i was wondering if anyone else has experimented with using programs or other random file types, and analyzing them as a sonic source. what methods are there of doing this, because i have trouble reproducing what happened.
this compilation apparently deals with the same idea:
Tom Erbe’s program SoundHack will slap a AIFF header on anything. I used an Excel spreadsheet of my bank account to produce a wonderfully noisy sample for a piece once, thanks to Tom.
You can also use the openraw message for sfplay~, which is useful to respond to the question "can I play a MIDI file in sfplay~?" ;-)
File that plays itself.
