This sound library features years of work from Chris
and is available only on CD-ROM. This CD-ROM consists of 16 bit 44.1 kHz AIFF stereo sound
files, ready for use in your digital workstation, sampler and performance applications and will
mount on PCs (running Windows 95 or higher) or any Macintosh computer.
"The sounds contained in this cross-platform, single CD-ROM collection are indeed
sonically abusive, but they're also very cool and usable, especially if your project
calls for sci-fi, alien-type sounds."
- Home Recording Magazine December 1999
Chris Grigg is probably best known as a member of the not-exactly-a-band
called Negativland (which is best known for its found-sound collage work
such as the infamous "U2/Negativland" record, and for its dedication to
copyright law reform). But Chris has also always been interested in lots
of other things, too-- especially things like music technology, computer
audio, and abstract sounds. As a sound designer and software programmer
he's been contributing his peculiar sense of what makes for unusual and
interesting sound to Negativland projects, to feature films, to his own
music, and even to computer games, for many years. The Digital
Dysfunctions sound library was cross-fertilized by those diverse
experiences in audio creation, and is built to be useful to anyone working
in any of those realms who's looking for something out of the ordinary.
Chris Grigg has been involved in music and sound for games since
1985, both as an artist (titles from LucasFilm Games, Activision,
Electronic Arts, Epyx, Rocket Science, and Pixar), as a music and
sound tool designer (LucasFilm Games, Epyx, Sega, Pixar), and as
a creative and technical director (Epyx).
Having spent a sabbatical in the film sound world, Chris is currently
a consultant to the game sound industry, a member of IA-SIG, a
creator of sound libraries, and a developer of media production tools
under the name Control-G.
In keeping with Negativland's characteristic openness, Chris described his
methods of using the computer to mangle sounds in a June 1994 article in
Keyboard Magazine, also called 'Digital Dysfunctions,' and this educational
information is still available at http://www.control-g.com/ .
