Ticking clock techno in Paris

Paris, France – a trip from Gare de Port-Royal in Paris, a station on the border between its 5th and 6th arrondisements. Standing beneath a large clock, the relentless ticking is punctuated by the coming and going of trains.

The reimagined sound by Karhide takes the field recording as its source material but twists it into something almost unrecognisable – a drum-led, arpeggiated techno track with those ticking clock hands as its central metronome.
