The residual risk material is essentially limited to two elements: a noise drawn directly into the computer with a suitable tool as a chaotic waveform, and needle pulses of variable frequency generated by an analog synthesizer. These are reminiscent of the sound of a contamination meter. The processing was done using steep resonance filters, digital octave transposition, reversion and superimposition. If the frequencies are very close to each other, beatings and gliding changes of the overtone spectrum occur. Directional and distance impressions are created, which are only caused by the phase position of the signals. There is no additional panorama control or room simulation.
