about

This release is my first one consisting of field-recordings only, something that I've wanted to do for some time now. The idea for it developed on the bus ride to the train station on my way downtown. I decided to record that day, and this is what was captured.

The tracks are in chronological order, except for Centre p.2 which would normal come after Centre p.1. Every track was recorded at the same volume, with the same post-processing applied across all tracks, as I tried to keep the general volume/sound of the day consistent. So although the loud part in the recordings are not as loud as they were (due to compression), the quiet parts are as quiet as they were.

This release tries to bring together the noise and ambience that you hear in a modern city, at times ear-piercingly loud, at others whisper quiet. Enjoy!
