Sax and the City: The Lonely Busker

 

An original composition based around a field recording from Amsterdam…

Original field Recording:

 

Re-Imagining:

 

I’ve tried to ‘get inside the head’ of the sax-playing busker…the piano motifs and synth lines are meant to represent his thoughts. Beyond his headspace you hear the dislocated ebb and flow of the city; even the sound of his own saxophone is in the distance as if he’s performing automatically and not really focused on it.

Piano sound comes from Kontakt 5 – ‘Giant’ module.

Synth line was created in Reaktor’s Prism.

Original recording was mainly processed using CamelSpace by Camel Audio:

Reverb  //  Stereo Delay  //  Auto pan  //  BP filter ( ongoing LFO style modulation of settings that ‘push’ and ‘pull’ at the city sounds)

Mastered with Izotope ozone 4.

This piece was composed for the ‘Cities and Memory’ website run by Stuart Fowkes…

Cities and Memory is a global field recording & sound art work that presents both the present reality of a place, but also its imagined, alternative counterpart – remixing the world, one sound at at time.

Every faithful field recording document on the sound map is accompanied by a reworking, a processing or an interpretation that imagines that place and time as somewhere else, somewhere new.
