Difference in Internet download rates creates a kind of resonance; this phenomenon reflects the space and speed of your computer and weather you are paying close enough attention to this page. For example, if you multi-task while this piece is running, it will create more delays. Resonance is now apparent from the first iteration, as the piece progresses, this same resonance oscillates until it transforms into a stutter and back to resonance again. The oscillations are unique to each computer and it’s users. “I am sitting in a room” by Alvin Lucier.

I am sitting in a room, different from the one you are in now, I am recording the sound of my speaking voice, and I am going to play it back into the room, again and again, until the resonant frequencies of the room re-enforce themselves so that any semblance of my speech, with perhaps the exception of rhythm, is destroyed. What you will hear then are the natural resonant frequencies of the room articulated by speech, I regard this activity, not so much as a demonstration of a physical fact but more as a way to smooth out any irregularities my speech might have.
