Looking out from Piazza San Marco in Venice across the lagoon, there is a regular mooring spot for many of the city's iconic gondolas, and they rock back and forth, sloshing gently along as motor boat traffic stirs the waters nearby.

A busker of west African origin sings under the porticos in Padova, Italy - this particular singer always chooses this spot for the excellent reverb it offers, as well as the healthy number of passers-by. He has a beautiful voice, and often sings what appear to be exrtemely heartfelt songs in what we assume is his mother tongue - this is an excerpt…
 
Padova busker reimagined by Barney Spigel. "Moved by the music being performed as well as the sense of place captured in the recording, I wanted to zoom in on some of my favourite slices of the soundscape by looping and layering them into an evolving pattern of rhythm, texture, harmony and timbre so as to hypnotise the listener into perceiving the …
 
Sottopasso delle Cure, Florence reimagined by Hansklammer. "We reimagined the underpass as an underground florentine network of tunnels through which the listener explores. We took inspiration from the Lou Reed track Glory of Love that is can be heard in the original field recording and based our soundscape on different interpretations of that song…
 
Camposampiero mass bells reimagined by Lisa Rae Bartolomei. "The act of atonement, contemplation and faith in a higher power brings light to the darkest of times , and we are all finding our own ways to find hope amongst the blackness of a year of misery and confinement. The bell a symbol of love, warning and the heart of community acts as a guidin…
 
Villa del Conte campana della sera reimagined by Rafoo. "When I first heard and picked the field recording, I remembered it being warm and idyllic. However, the day I finally got to working on it, I couldn't feel anything but discomfort/uneasiness. The resonance from the bells which builds up in the later part of the recording sounded like somethin…
 
On a Sunday morning, as dozens of people queue up outside the hospital at Camposampiero in Italy for a Covid-19 test as part of ongoing pandemic precautions across the country, the bells ring out for Sunday mass from the town beyond, to remind us of life trying to go on as normal in the midst of such unprecedented times. Recorded by Cities and Memo…
 
A second recording in a few years of the "campana della sera" (evening bell) in Villa del Conte, Italy, as the original repetitive chime that signals 9pm every day has now been replaced with a series of melodic patterns at the same time every day.

Abbazia Pisani September bells reimagined by Steve Germana. "For the Cities and Memory Italian remix project, I chose a field recording that began with steady bells and transitioned into bird calls. I found a tuning for a guitar to match the bells and improvised with the sounds. "Using one of my own patches in max/msp, I changed the pitch, speed, a…
 
Binaural recording from Campo Santa Margherita, Venice - this square is one of the social hubs of the city, a large open space filled with cafes and bars. This recording really conveys the sounds of a late, warm August afternoon, with cicadas buzzing, life passing by in the bars and cafes, and towards the end the piazza's church bells ring for 5pm.…
 
Campo Santa Margherita, Venice, reimagined by Una Walker. "Working on this piece exactly two years since my last trip to Venice provided an opportunity to re-live walking through the streets, over bridges, by the lagoon, and eating lunch in Campo Santa Margherita. The original recording is used as a spine throughout the piece around which I have wo…
 
Piazza della Cisterna, San Gimignano reimagined by Audio Obscura. "I asked Cities and Memory to allocate me a random field recording which seemed a fun way to approach this. I listened through to the recording only once and then decided to cut up the recording into small fragments and begin to assemble a piece this way. "It was made in a very hapha…

Mass bells in Abbazia Pisani reimagined by Neil Spencer Bruce (Light B4 Sound).

Mountain stream in Alba reimagined by Kenya DuBois. "Before the Covid-19 pandemic, I was planning a visit to several European countries.

Piazza Dalmazia, Florence reimagined by Mike Rucinski. "The original recording from the Piazza Dalmazia was almost ten minutes long, so I knew some careful selection was required in order to draw out a narrative.

Cinque Torri, Italy reimagined by Liz Hanks.

Cimitero Verano in Rome reimagined by Leon Muraglia. "Emiliano rushed home after making the recording. It was his turn to make dinner and his girlfriend was due home just after 5. The bus was a bit late so he just made it before she got home. After dinner, they talked about how their days had gone and watched a film. Emiliano then prepared his book…
 
Mercato delle Cascine, Florence reimagined by Laura Jacobs. "I only used sounds from the sample because I felt there was so much life and music in it already. I looped and used effects to highlight and add playfulness to the sections I particularly liked. I hope the listener feels they are floating inside and around the market, zooming in and out o…
 
Via Vincenzo Gioberti, Florence reimagined by David McKenna. "In Concrete Gazebo we use samples all the time, incorporating and 'playing' them during jams that are then are then edited and mixed. This sample was tried in a few ways but this piece perhaps best reflects the bustle of a city street as captured in the original recording."…
 
Piazza del Duomo, Siena reimagined by Bartosz Panek. "I really missed even the shortest journeys during recent lockdowns.

Looking at them I realised they resemble old trains moving slowly on…
 
Stromboli beach reimagined by Giovanni Verga. "An ancient legend tells us that Strombolicchio is the cap of the Stromboli volcano thrown into the sea by a violent eruption. And indeed, this small volcanic island is located right opposite the volcano. "This image took me back to 20 years ago on a cold April morning when I was in the island walking o…
 
Verano Cemetary: a huge monumental burial, full of tombs of important people in Rome and in Italy, surrounded by giant walls and a circle of trees.
