My first E.P.: Five semi-generative ambient soundscapes, created on an iPad….
The final track is the crescendo, the blossoming of this series of semi generative patches… and as such there is an increase in volume, this is an evolutionary artefact, intentionally left au naturel… please adjust your listening devices accordingly to suit your optimum audio pleasue…!
Price is free or name your price… enjoy sensibly!
This was recorded by a BBC sound recordist on the night of 19th May 1942… the night of the Mannheim air raid.
Poignant and surreal, a legendary snippet of sound in history that also inspired the Manfred Mann’s Earth Band’s album of 1975 “Nightingales and Bombers”.
Original post here
During the evening of 19 May, 1942, a BBC sound recording team were in a Surrey garden to transmit live the song of nightingales. Part way through the recording 197 bombers started to drone over on a mission to Mannheim. Thinking that the aircraft could potentially alert the Germans to an impending raid, the live recording was stopped, but the live recording continued to capture the passing of the bombers. It’s a haunting combination.
The raid involved 197 aircraft; 105 Wellingtons, 31 Stirlings, 29 Halifaxes, 15 Hampdens, 13 Lancasters and four Manchesters. 11 aircraft were lost; four Halifaxes, four Stirlings and three Wellingtons.
I created a piece for the 408th weekly Disquiet Junto,
Were “fritiniency” (“the chirruping sound made by birds or insects”) a musical genre or technique, what would it sound like?
It appears in the playlist below track 28 – Elytrae.
I also created the artwork, a t 3d render of a Cricket.
