This EP is a series of abstracted variations of a popular Christmas tune. It's all done in SuperCollider over the course of 5 days. The instruments used are a Risset bell, Karplus Strong, an organ from sccode, the default synthdef and a bomb ample from Freesound. The cover image is from a US nuclear bomb test. Ultimately, the apocalypse is a self-indulgent fantasy that ignores the realities of climate change and ways we might address it, and what better season for indulgences than Christmas?
