1913: Beach construction (Andrulian reimagining)

4/24/2018
More
Construction on Talpe beach, reimagined by Andy Lyon: "I've taken a slightly different approach with this one. I've used the whole sample, processed and layered with a number of effects in various samplers in Hollyhock 3 - blackhole; octavox; Specops; blackhole and Ultratap. I've also cut up part of the sample and processed in Glitchmachine's latest plugin Palindrome and processed with blackhole and Factory 3000 delay. (All Eventide effects) I've then layered some orchestral parts using...

4/9/2018
More
Recorded by Marcel Gnauk in the bat cave at the Goa Lawah Temple, Bali, Indonesia. "I was standing in front of the cave and couldn’t believe it, Thousands of bats sleeping, squeaking or flying around the cave! In the back of the cave is another room with even more bats. The bats leaving the cave at night and coming back in the morning. Maybe someday I come here again and wait until this happens but I think they close the temple before." "As a visitor, you are not allowed to walk on the...

1909: To the batcave!

4/9/2018
More
Bat cave in Indonesia reimagined by Cities and Memory. We've hidden away the sounds of bats under low-pass filters, reverb and other effects, gradually unveiling them with slow-release envelopes over the course of the piece, to symbolise the bats emerging from their dark roosts at sunset. The shimmering synth patterns represent the beating of their wings as they head out into the night.

Busker on the streets of Yerevan reimagined by Cities and Memory. For this piece, we imagined this recording of a busker found on a battered piece of skipping vinyl in a ruined building many years later. The piece, layered with filters, tape effects and vinyl processing, is as if rediscovered through the lens of history, as a cultural artefact for future generations.

1898: Improv in the house of Geiko

2/16/2018
More
Geiko performance in Kyoto reimagined by Cities and Memory. The sound of the Geiko singing is very beautiful, but also quite atonal to my untrained western ears, and certainly very unusual - a quality I wanted to bring out in the reimagined sound. I entered the Geikos' singing into an audio-to-MIDI converter, using the MIDI data from their voices to control various instruments. In this way, I created my own experimental improvisational group, who I imagined our Geiko audience had come to...
