Through the process of degradation, Slough transforms into different states through changes in texture, articulation, character, etc... Transient emphasis and greater use of noise elements disintegrate the material, over time, in tandem with further destruction of the spectra. Timbre is the primary developmental element in Slough. The extreme contrasts, throughout, are representational of the chunky shedding that is associated with the word "slough".
