Jerod Sommerfeldt - Pareidolia

The works of Jerod Sommerfeldt, a composer of acousmatic music teaching at the Miami University of Ohio, on Pareidolia are informed by both the investigation of digital audio artifacts and stochastic processes. Audible results of some signal processes once ripe for deletion - aliased frequencies, quantization noise, speaker clicks - are transformed into the focus of the music. Though sounds and their placement in time are often the result of random procedures, subtle beats and vaguely recognizable patterns emerge, all questioning the dichotomy between the intended and unintentional.
