I Hear You Singing In The Wire

This piece consists of Glen Campbell’s version of Wichita Lineman played through a sequence of reverb filters.

Reverberation occurs when sound waves persist in spaces after the removal of the original sound source, reflecting off walls and ceilings, decreasing in amplitude as they gradually fade. This repeated reflection leads to entropy, as imperfections in the waveforms are repeated at each point of reflection. The Wichita Lineman is a lone figure silhouetted against the wilderness, hallucinating the voice of an absent lover in the wires, keeping transmission lines open against the encroaching entropy of nature.
