MNM stage version at the ZKM, July 2014
Today I celebrate the a new release from my alter ego Stan Tropic. Produced with my friend Boogiemann it features 2 tracks of Nu-disco/Re-edit goodness.
In response to an open-call from the Osso Collective in Portugal this piece was featured in their “Intermission: Audio portraits of place – Mapping the space between A and B” project.
Noise Intercepted Challenge #8 – the Portrait. For this challenge I explore the sonic worlds that have arrived at my window. This every changing world is usually ignored but can often produce some interesting sound worlds.
Noise Incepted challenge #7. This piece is dedicated to all those cyclists who for some unknown reason act like like morons 🙂
For the Noise Intercepted challenge #6, The Eavesdropper I have created a soundscape piece made of 47 samples of anonymous dialogue. Featuring various languages, and process using various spatial techniques, it reconstructs into something very familiar. Is that strange?
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.
