This piece plays with a bug in the operating system of the Ensoniq ASR-10 digital sampler. A randomly selected group of sampled recordings of speech, musical passages and single sounds are placed into the sampler's memory. In addition, a number of preset parametric processes are set up; the whole is then subjected to near-random processing due to the bug. The spectrogram shows some of the interesting patterns emerging from the parametric processes transformed by memory management bugs.
