Great Orme Copper Mine (Auto Filter)

This piece uses a short field recording made at the Bronze Age copper mines at Great Orme, Llandudno, North Wales. As the original recording repeats, it is side-chained to a series of automated filters of varying sensitivity, transforming the sound of dripping from the limestone tunnels into an array of synthetic voices. On the third repetition the source audio is muted, leaving just the synthetic signals.
