City Circles

Originally composed for the 2020 edition of the Australasian Computer Music Conference, “City Circles” is a 28 minute piece that furthers my research on loops as a main musical currency, as well as the exploration of urban sounds and scenery, also present in 2018’s “A deafening silence”.

Low frequency pulses and oscillator-like tones set up the canvas for field recordings to take the hand of the listener and embark on a circular stroll around a nondescript city, both through dangerous alleyways and lively parklands.

Composed by Subespai (Mauri Edo).
Artwork & layout by Josh Paton.
Recorded, mixed & mastered by Matthew Syres.
Performed @ Alpha House Gallery in Erskineville, Gadigal Land. Sovereignty was never ceded.
