Victoria Bridge – turned into house music

Victoria Bridge – turned into house music
22nd August 2014 Cities and Memory

Victoria-Bridge_BrisbaneOur first time in a new continent this Friday, with a visit to Australia courtesy of Guadalajara-based sound artist Emmanuel Galvan. He’s taken a recording of the Victoria Bridge, right at the heart of Brisbane, and turned it into some deep electronica, best explained here in his own words:

“I did this composition as part of a project at the Queensland University of Technology, it marked the completion of my masters in creative industries (music & sound). In this project I explored the relationship arising between people and the places they inhabit. It was a brief immersion into the concepts of the soundscape and acoustic ecology. I also considered some ideas on noise and its nature.”

“The composition is strongly based on the sounds of public transport buses crossing over the Victoria Bridge in Brisbane, I felt this was a unique sound of the city, as it was produced by the movement of its inhabitants over an iconic location. Transforming these sounds into “music” was done by digital sound processing techniques. Mainly by resonating frequencies and creating atmospheres and ambient sounds from them. ”

More coming from Emmanuel on Cities & Memory soon…
