suRRism-Phonoethics is proud to release HighWay17 – ‘The Grain Box EP‘! HighWay17 – ‘THE GRAIN BOX (EP)’ “Film grain or granularity is the random optical texture of processed photographic film due to the presence of small particles of a metallic silver, or dye clouds, developed from silver halide that have received enough photons. While film grain is a function of such particles (or dye clouds) it is not the same thing as such. It is an optical effect, the magnitude of which (amount of grain) depends on both the film stock and the definition at which it is observed. When the particles of silver are small, the standard aperture area measures an average of many particles, so the granularity is small. When the particles are large, fewer are averaged in the standard area, so there is a larger random fluctuation, and a higher granularity number. In digital photography, image noise sometimes appears as a “grain-like” effect.” “awkwardly the fish was tied to many lies uncertain of moves she would shatter below this case trying to choose the principal for this investigation to encounter behind boozer windows was the toughest task for these autonomous scientific results layered by light switching suits happened fast as sent by wheels to destination vacuum as motion through tactile forces as he finally stepped up to her facing owned illusions the neutral iron celebrated scars across the sky as pleasure dropped by anger he realized…” -Jaan Patterson Download from IA the whole package including 320Kbps Mp3′s, covers & information here.
