Program note

AUTOTUNE is a much used effect in pop music production, sometimes used in “secret”, rather discretely, but just as often used with quite extreme settings as a characteristic effect. The first (main) part of the piece explores or “hacks” the plug-in, trying out its possibilities, bringing it to its limits and looking for the beauty of its flaws.
