The history of Zagreb

The history of Zagreb
29th May 2017 Cities and Memory

A cannon booms out into the sky, and then the bells ring out across the city of Zagreb, Croatia, in today’s recording by Mark Wilden.

This sound was recomposed with a historical bent by Andy Billington, who explains:

“The original field recording is still there in the background and set against it i transposed random content relating to Zagreb taken from YouTube.

“I also used Google Translate to change Wiki text content relating to Zagreb and the history of the city into audio files. These were then added to the recording and act to anchor the sonics together.

“The refrain at the end is manipulated voices from a late 1950s documentary about Zagreb (again thanks YouTube) chopped, slowed and repitched. ”
