I’m pleased to announce a new Cities & Memory project today, and put out an open call for contributors: a day in the sonic life of Hamburg.
I’ll be travelling to Hamburg, Germany, in the first week of October to spend the week recording the sounds and capturing the sonic character and essence of the city.
The aim is to present 24 field recordings representing 24 hours in the life of the city, and then for 24 sound artists/musicians to remix a sound each, presenting a collaborative and global reinterpretation of the sounds of one day in the life of a city.
There are still a few slots available for remixers, so this is an OPEN CALL for contributors.
Field recordings will be made available from 11 October, and remixes will be needed within the next two weeks, by 26 October. Then, on 27 October, one sound will be released every hour that day here on Cities and Memory. There will also be a bespoke sound map of Hamburg to document all of the sounds from the trip.
If you’re interested in taking part, please get in touch!
