2404: Stochastic Flows

3/23/2019
More
Cliff Geyser reimagined by Kathleen Judge. "Listening to the geyser recording I kept thinking of rushing particles, rhythm and flow. Living in the city I wanted to juxtapose similar sounds that flow (subways, machines, people) with this 'nature' recording. I start and end with the original geyser 'as is', then weave my field recordings into the original recording (hangers, pipes, ice, glass, subway singers, radio). I used the geyser recording on 3 tracks. The first track I left alone,...

2401: Horseback riders (Andy Lyon reimagining)

3/22/2019
More
Horse-drawn wagon reimagined by Andy Lyon. "I've used a grain sampler in Hollyhock 3 DAW with automation of the speed/gain and pitch/grain controls routed to 4 send effects to process the recording. Altering the pitch and speed of the recording produces some interesting and unusual results, it alters the perception of time whilst retaining the theme of galloping horses. I've then layered orchestration to compliment and contrast, keeping it subtle so the focus is on the processed recording."...

2399: Water Souls

3/20/2019
More
Geyser Hill reimagined by Kim Rueger. "The cyclical sound of the field recording - looping bubbles and drips, rising and falling in random patterns - led me to create this meditation, made solely from the sound of the water itself. All parts in this piece are sections of the Geyser Hill recording; manipulated, processed, and the entire piece composed in the Borderlands Granular app for iPad. Individual streams (of audio) were then rendered out as multitrack stems and re-mixed in a DAW...

2396: A Gaggle for the 21st Century

3/19/2019
More
Canada geese reimagined by Glenn Sogge. "Stretched out to 11-12 times as long with modifications to the partials and filtering as it was being stretched. A reversed copy of the new file was made with the channels swapped. Both files were then modified by a complex effect chain in Native Instruments' Absynth with differences in FX order and some settings for each track. The title was influenced by the metallic sounds suggesting an android or robotic future even for Nature." Part of the...

2395: Guitar for Sawmill Geyser

3/19/2019
More
Sawmill Geyser reimagined by Luis Antero. "For this music piece, I used a braguesa, a traditional guitar from the Minho region, Portugal, which I later manipulated with the purpose of building a quiet and minimal ambience. The original recording contributed to this." Part of the Yellowstone project - see www.citiesandmemory.com/yellowstone for more.

2394: Silver Springs Steel

3/19/2019
More
Scissors Spring reimagined by Jay Kreimer. "The rhythmic bubbling of the breathing earth in the scissor springs (#12) recording asked for a simple anchor in the bass range with ripples up above. I just finished sound work for a large sculpture and weaving addressing the Platte River; water’s on my mind. I played an instrument of my own making that incorporates a bass string and a tuned steel spring. Both are stopped by a steel in the manner of a steel guitar. I analyzed the pitches in the...

2393: Into the Geyser

3/19/2019
More
Grand Geyser reimagined by Eric Powell. "This piece was a chance for me to try out some different software. As I experimented with a new DAW, I used tools like pitch and time shifts, and resonators. As I continued composing, I felt there was a sense of going down deep within the crust of the Earth, thus the title." Part of the Yellowstone project - see www.citiesandmemory.com/yellowstone for more.

2392: Savannah falls

3/19/2019
More
Savannah sparrow reimagined by Hans Glib. "I wanted to express the fact that Yellowstone Park, for all its beauty and tranquility, is sitting on a tectonic powderkeg that could destroy that beauty in moments. I'm currently experimenting with grain synthesis, which I used to create a random-sounding, but interlocking, series of rhythms out of the sparrow's call. It's overlaid with an evolving, slightly dissonant, textural drone to give a sense of uneasy peacefulness. As the piece progresses...

2391: Primordial

3/19/2019
More
Beryl Spring reimagined by Lisa Rae Bartolomei. "Yellowstone, the super volcano has always been a source of fear and fascination of mine. A living roaring beast that at any point could annihilate our existence on earth, yet it teems with life. There's something primordial, like the Titans of Greek Mythology about this place. There was a sense of foreboding that I tried to permeate throughout the piece. The idea of a breathing, living Primordial organism birthing a differentiated sound world...
