The trees of fantasy

Cities and Memory - remixing the world

Birds in an Azorean garden reimagined by Cities and Memory.

The interlacing lines of different species of bird all competing with one another for sonic territory was the immediately attention-grabbing aspect of this recording.

For the reimagined piece, we've taken different routes to effecting parts of the birdsong, so the various rhythm generators, effects and modulations represent the different species of bird who are all jostling for the attention of the listener. The chorus coming from these two trees becomes an electrified chorus.
