about

Huge cavernous silos...
a cacophony of horns...
maze-like patterns and sequences that circle and loop...
peace broken by invisible electricity...

The hidden sound world in the Chinese cities of Shenzen and Shanghai captured and explored through field recordings using traditional, contact and electromagnetic microphones, then absorbed into and interpreted through Buchla synthesiser compositions.

Contains bonus material including This Brutal Slaughterhouse, and individual download versions of Old Milfun, OCT Meditation and Silo. Plus additional field recordings. A PDF with full notes on the recordings is also included.

Musicity seeks to encourage people to explore the city musically, architecturally and experientially by commissioning musicians to compose original tracks in response to a building, site or element of the city that inspires them.
