Created with regard to comments by David Byrne concerning how music is defined by the environment in which it is expected to be reproduced, ReWave is short. Music for the NOW generation.

It is a single instance of sample of a single wave that was 0.0094 second long, played through a sampler instrument. ReWave was composed to extend this single waveform for as long as possible, without adding effects. The Pixiemix took the opposite approach, reproducing the waveform in the shortest possible time allowed by the software, whilst remaining audible. The Mysticmix is a single instance of a convolution space applied to ReWave #1. In order for the tail to be as long as possible it was necessary to apply a limiter to the result.

The waveform used is pictured on the icon.
