Oblique Strategies

Cities and Memory: Oblique Strategies saw more than 60 artists all over the world reinterpret and reimagine field OS_Shareable_1 (1)recordings, using Eno and Schmidt’s Oblique Strategies cards as creative inspiration for their reworking of the original source sound.

Each artist selected a source field recording to reimagine, and was then allocated two Oblique Strategy cards, which they used to guide, inform and inspire their reimagined version of the recording.

The project built a whole world of new sounds, created and divined by chance and oblique inspiration.
