The Mule is classified under the number 33 in the auca from the XIX Century “Animales Cuadrúpedos” by Joan Llorens. The Mule drags endlessly.

The sounds here are part of three infinite self-generating sequences composed of 11 sound sources — sound waves + sound samples. The parameters for all filters, envelopes and effects are set to multiples of eleven values. The result is this really annoying, monotonous but ever-changing sequence.


These sounds have been housed in 22 3-minute infinite tape loop cassettes.
Each cassette has been recorded directly from the source so every single one is different from the rest, since each one captures only three minutes of an infinite self-generating sequence.
