Based on recordings of Athens center, done for the project “The Soundscape we live in”. Avoiding to disrupt the flow of recorded events, I looked for musical motives, and using various techniques I isolated prominent tonal or noisy parts of the spectrum. This way I ended up with a new musical flow, a distillate so to speak of the city noise.
