C. Reider ¦|¦ Buddha Reduction


     "Buddha Reduction" was composed using a process I have been calling "reduction" in which a source sound is subjected to a series of repeated noise reductions using a type of processing that uses a sound sample selected by the user to reduce unwanted noise. The source sounds for this particular release were taken from the Buddha Machine and the Buddha Machine 2 from FM3.

     I have used this same reduction process in the past, most recently for one of the Disquiet Junto challenges on soundcloud: "Bottle Reduction". Before that, the process was used to "remove the drone from the drone" in a recording titled "Inconstant".

     There is a more detailed explanation of the process at my blog: http://www.vuzhmusic.com/blog/?p=1193.
