ECCOS (2012)

122.8 MB folder, containing .mp3 & .jpg files

ECCOS is a modification of the soundtrack from an Ecco the Dolphin gameplay video found on Youtube. Wilson contextualizes ECCOS as furniture music: not a centerpiece, but a backdrop for thought and other activities. The project utilizes an input output system, in which he employs the simple "change speed" and "echo" effects in Final Cut Pro and pushes them to their maximum values. Wilson has diagrammed the process, relating it to kindred experiments like Brian Eno's Discreet Music. In that spirit, ECCOS seeks--and finds--a limit within the music itself.
