pixelbeat 1.0

A minidisc release, conceived as a companion piece to the “Un million de pixels” digital print project.

It consists in a minidisc exploited to the maximum of its physical capacities, comprising 250 audio tracks of less than one second duration – a technical challenge which almost no minidisc player manages to read without stuttering.

This staccato rhythm is followed by a ten minute sound piece, generated from a time-stretched minidisc recording error. This sequence has a track title reaching the maximum lenght of 1200 characters – the display of an average minidisc player needs more than 15 minutes to show it fully.
