World Listening Day – Sound Waves composition

As part of our overall Sound Waves project, 38 sound artists from around the world have submitted a field recording and reimagining of water somewhere in the world: ocean, river, lake, stream, swimming pool, boiling kettle, splash of a puddle – anything in which water is the defining sound. These reimagined sounds have been recomposed and re-edited by Cities and Memory into this 30-minute mixed sound piece incorporating many of the sounds in a new context.

A river inspired by William Blake

“As the river flows uninterruptedly, it nurtures the life of all living organisms and shapes the landscape. At the same time it nourishes the human culture, being a provider of the life-giving water, as well as a constant point of reference, a place on the map, and in history, a vessel of memory, the constant murmur of which endows those who grow and flourish with the remembrance of those who are long gone.”
