It’s time for our final release of 2021 – and the shortest day of the year is the perfect time to release an EP entirely built from the sounds of night.
As the clocks went back and the evenings grew long, Cities and Memory issued long-standing collaborator Karhide with a challenge – to work with the sounds of night and darkness to create a brand new release built from field recordings.
The result is At Night, a vibrant collection of reimagined pieces constructed from a specially-curated selection of nightlife field recordings from around the world.
From waves crashing onto an isolated beach at 2.00am and a deadly still night soundscape from Mongolia to a vibrant Thai night market and a late-night layover in a Saudi airport, the source material is as dynamic and full of life as the final compositions.
Join us on a journey into the nocturnal side of life – remixed and reimagined with crunching guitars, shimmering synths and no small dose of atmosphere.
