Frightening drones in Taipei City
A protest from 2011 in Taipei City, Taiwan, recorded by Tsan-Cheng Wu: “a protest against the head of the police in violation of the Constitution.
“Many students and people gathered in front of the police station, and asked the head of the police to come out to explain.”
This sound was reimagined by Marco Maril, who spotted a particular sound in the recording he wanted to focus on:
“When I first listen to the original recording I was struck by a low-frequency drone sound that remained omnipresent in the background. My first step was to isolate that sound and from there I started to build my piece.
“All other sounds belong to the original recording and have been processed to a greater or lesser extent.
“Just the sound of the kick drum comes from a Buchla synth, the rest is part of the Taipei City protest field recording.”
