crashzident - Pfaffenthal-Shinjuku


The basis of this composition is a "world-scratch" by BRAND (www.g-turns.com), who play the world in the same way a record player plays records. They scratch across the earth's topography with the help of two databases, among them Google Earth. I was offered a free song recently during their product presentation @Philharmonie Luxembourg on Mar 31, 2007, and given permission to use it any way I want. I chose a 15-minute journey from Pfaffenthal (Luxembourg City) to Shinjuku (Tokyo), and what you can hear is the needle scratch in a straight line from A to B. I used to live in Tokyo, hence my choice. I then had a look at a World Atlas to see just what exactly I can hear... and I then overdubbed this recording 3 times with musical exploits of my own in order to get to what you can hear now. But the world-scratch from A to B is teh basis and what inspired whatever else I have put on top. Critical comments appreciated.

Thanks to the explication, the track really stimulated my imagination, nice. But I wonder what I would think of it without knowing where it came from. It sounds like a needle on a slipmat from time to time wich is a bit of a frightning sound ("oh no, my needle!)

/ Thanks for your comment. Hmm... Do you think I should erase all the info on it for the time being, to see what people make of it then?

nice concept ; a bit too unfiltered/noisy, but that's my problem.
