Utopia E5: Utopian Halyards

Michael Trommer’s excellent submission to our Utopia project takes a simple harbour-based premise and creates a wonderful image of maritime Utopia.

Utopian Halyards – Michael Trommer, Toronto, Canada

“My submission for City and Memory’s ‘Utopia’ project is based on field recordings made of sailboat halyards at various harbours in the vicinity of Toronto.

In some cases the recordings have been spectrally processed with sections of pop songs which reference the sea, the ocean or water.”
