For challenge #5 of the Noise Intercepted project I have created a soundscape piece. Produced from field recordings of my neighborhood in Kreuzberg, Berlin, it attempts to convey the sense of spring, or at least how I feel it. Focusing on the subtle details it shines a light on audio events often missed in the din of city life.
For challenge #4 of The Noise Project I created a piece that reflects the impact of the exterior soundscape when listening to music on headphones. The piece is generated by the features that the 1st 3 submissions have in common with the track I was listening too.
For the 3rd challenge in the Noise Intercepted project I have created a piece called Empty vessels make the sweetest sound. The source material was recorded at an abandoned US Cold War listening station, Teufelsberg. The piece makes use of the amazing acoustics in the building and attempts to give the listener an experience of being at the location.
For part 2 of the Noise Intercepted project I have answered their “Little Things” challenge with my piece Aeolian Construction. Created from a recording of wind blowing through scaffolding it creates the unusual sense of waves crashing on the shoreline, except this is the city. A very pleasurable auditory experience, from what is a very common mundane site in modern city.
I am taking in a project organised by Labspace Studio called Noise Intercepted, a global art project about noise.
Recently I have started a collaborative project with Christian Graupner. Exploring the edge between cliché and expressive language the installation FeeedBack5 opens up a field of experimentation to create a new form of inter-connectivity between video characters, sound generators and visitors / players. The prototype of this project, FB5pp, will be presented on December 7th at Leap, Berlin.
I finally got around to releasing some material from the solo project I have been developing for the last 2 years. A live performance, it explores and abstracts field recordings in order to attempt a dialogue between the din of city life and the pristine sound found in nature.
As promised some new releases from Stan Tropic. Comet & Vega are 2 tracks to keep you moving and grooving on the dancefloor.
This week marks the release for the 1st EP on my new label, Let in Music. Featuring my alter-ego Stan Tropic, it’s a 3 track Cuban, deep house, groovy affair which hopefully will encourage those summer vibes and long evenings for fun and frolics.
