I’m delighted to say that German net label Mobius Spin will be releasing a selection of the reimagined sounds from our recent #Hamburgsounds project as an album next month.
The album, which will be titled ‘Erinnerungen an eine Stadt’, will feature 24 track based on my field recordings from Hamburg from 24 different sounds artists, representing 24 hours in the life of the city of Hamburg. The track listing will take you on a geographical trip across the city, starting in the west at the Willkomm Hoeft, and finishing further east in Ohlsdorf. Along the way, there will be pounding techno, delicate piano ballads, abstract drone compositions and several pieces that defy any categorization at all!
Best of all, the album will be completely free to download.
It’s out on 12 December, and will feature a PDF full of info about all the artists who’ve contributed.
