"Induxatur" (instrumental single)

Background notes about the single "Induxatur" (instrumental single) by Franskaya


"Induxatur" is an instrumental electronic composition by Franskaya, exploring the harmony between noise and music. The compositional exercise involved merging white noise, a mix of all frequencies, with deliberately chosen musical elements to create an experience where noise and music pleasantly intertwine. Inspired by artists like Brian Eno and John Cage, the word "Induxatur" is a fusion of 'Industry' and 'Nature,' symbolizing the destructive collision between nature and human industry.

Context and thoughts on production:

Noise and music are often seen as opposites. While white noise is a mixture of all frequencies simultaneously, music involves a deliberate selection of pleasing frequencies over time.

While creating this track, I attempted to blend these opposing forces into one harmonious composition. My aim was to let music emerge from noise, blurring the lines between them, and to make all sounds used in the track resemble white noise. This wasn't an innovation per se, as some common sounds like cymbals are quite close to white noise. The innovation in "Induxatur" was in attempting to ensure that all sounds used had a white noise-like quality. For those less familiar with the concept of white noise and sound frequencies, white noise can resemble the soothing rush of a waterfall, the hissing sound of static on a television, the sound of wind, or even the noise of rocket propulsors.

In "Induxatur," I strived to craft an experience where the boundaries between noise and music become beautifully intertwined, aesthetically pleasing to the ear.

Other composers have tried this before. Musicians like Brian Eno have used noise as a creative tool, blending it with traditional musical elements. Eno's ambient works, such as "Music for Airports," often feature ethereal noise textures. John Cage famously pushed the boundaries by incorporating noise elements into their compositions. Cage's 4'33" is a composition where the "music" is the ambient noise of the environment in which it's performed. In other words, nothing to hear!

One might ponder the origin of the unusual name, 'Induxatur'. It's a fusion of two contrasting words, 'Industry' and 'Nature,' mirroring the dichotomy between 'noise' and 'music.' In 2015, deeply immersed in ecological concerns, I chose 'Induxatur' as a metaphor for the opposition between two extremes, much like how nature and industry often collide in our world.
