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…
 
La Campana dell'Amicizia e della Concordia (the bell of friendship and peace) is a monument on top of Monte Piano in the Dolomites. The bell monument was created as a warning to remind us to look for peace between peoples, and is located on a trench crag, between the first Italian-Austrian line. When you ring the bell, it resounds over an enormous …
 
Mass bells in Abbazia Pisani reimagined by Neil Spencer Bruce (Light B4 Sound). "The importance of bells in soundscape and culture is well documented as a way of controlling people and providing a sense of community. I wanted to explore both the tonality of the bell and the spaces in which the chime. On first hearing the field recording, images of …
 
Mountain stream in Alba reimagined by Kenya DuBois. "Before the Covid-19 pandemic, I was planning a visit to several European countries. The meditative sound of the recording in tandem with my composition represents a portion of the sensory experience of sound and fragrance that I looked forward to experiencing, such as cafés, countrysides, and the…
 
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. On second listen it became clear that while this was a busy street with people, vehicles and cafes / shops, a darker undertone began to p…
 
Cinque Torri, Italy reimagined by Liz Hanks. "The field recording of birds, people and a distant aeroplane inspired me to contemplate on the increasing polarisation between, nature, humans and technology. The three elements currently co-exist but we as a human population need to make huge changes to make this sustainable. The piece is a lament for …
 
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. Before the latest, introduced in Poland in October 2021, I travelled to Łódź, a city where you can hear trams everywhere. They are quite old and old-fashioned. 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. Its dimensions, walls and trees makes it a quiet place: traffic noise is barely audible from the centre of the cemetery (where the audio starts) with birds singing, then moving gradually to the exit the…
 
Soundscape from Via Vincenzo Gioberti, Florence, Italy. Florence is not only a city centre with countryside surrounding it, but there are also many other areas to be explored. These places do not only offer original and unexpected points of interest for art lovers, but they also have a kaleidoscope of sounds that really tell you something about lif…
 
Soundscape from Piazza Dalmazia, Florence, Italy. In every corner of the city there is a market at least once a week. Ostensibly they look very similar, but each one has its own features, according to the zone of the city in which it is held. You can guess the typical inhabitant of every area by listening to the voices and the way the customers app…
 
Crickets in Scopello, Sicily reimagined by Michael Reiley. "The piece started with the high pitch din of the night-time crickets. After all my work with Echozoo reimaging the sounds of extinct animals I got very inspired by imagining and interpreting what is it that animals hear. How is their interior soundscape different that what humans hear? Wit…
 
Bells in San Gimignano reimagined by Jase Warner. "'Campane Italiane' features a field recording of bells ringing out in San Gimignano, a hill town in Italy’s Tuscany region. "The composition is made up of multiple layers of the original recording, each accompanied with its own particular drone texture. Synthesiser tracks have also been added to co…
 
Bells ring out for morning mass in Abbazia Pisani, Italy - in the background you can hear the morning radio show burbling away to itself, while periodically two dogs bark at everyone who passes their house across the street. A typical soundscape of morning life. Recorded by Cities and Memory.By Cities and Memory
 
Siena's Piazza del Campo is known all over the world for its stunning beauty and unusual shell-like shape, and its size and shape also gives it fascinating sonic characteristics. Here we stand in the centre of the piazza to take a binaural recording of a typical August afternoon in the centre of Siena. Recorded by Cities and Memory.…
 
Piazza del Campo, Siena reimagined by Andy Billington. "I worked into the original recording of Siena Piazza del Campo a number of forgotten "sonic sketch book ideas" found on an old computer hard drive. Abandoned song ideas, Zoom recorder piano motifs from lockdown 2020 and some fragmented reverse piano tape experiments were re appropriated. These…
 
Palermo airport reimagined by Mat Ward. "Leaving Sicily is a poetic remembrance, expressed through sound, of my travels across the Island in 2017. For me the island was a constant barrage of wonder; both beautiful and terrifying, welcoming and isolating, modern and ancient and familiar yet alien. "The piece heavily manipulates samples from the fiel…
 
Giardino di Villa Strozzi, Florence, reimagined by Sarah Knudtson. "The sounds of the Giardino di Villa Strozzi reminded me of dusk and I imagined a magical stroll along its wooded paths. As I began to play with remixing the recording I suddenly remembered a series of anti-records I had created from discs I had inherited from my grandmother. Lookin…
 
Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta in Volterra reimagined by Artur Kinal. "As may be seen from the title I was inspired by Guy Debord quote: "each person will live in his own personal 'cathedral'". So I reimagined this actual cathedral singing to make it more personal and fitting to my imagination of my own cathedral and how it would sound. "In the p…
 
Piazza Dalmazia in Florence reimagined by Ross Burns. "The inspiration: You are falling asleep in the afternoon and are somewhere warm. As you drift off, lightly in the background you begin to hear only the sounds around you. This field recording reminded me of these moments. "The track is made by panning different parts of the field recording to t…
 
Kotor clock tower reimagined by Camilla Fanning. "The Montenegro bell recording is perfectly pleasant, unfortunately the year that's in it all I could think of was a warning bell. The piece reflects a sense of swirling words, numbers, unease and alarm. "The tracks are taken from real emails and texts received over the last year, as well as some off…
 
Recording from inside the hull of a car ferry from Elba to Piombino, Italy, arriving at our destination. It's a claustrophobic, dense soundscape in which the overwhelming drone of the ferry's engines is punctuated by a car alarm going off, and towards the end the ferry doors open, letting in the summer morning daylight and an escape to freedom. Rec…
 
"The Baie de Cayola is located on the western shores (Atlantic Ocean) of France near Les Sables d'Olonne. It is a very small bay (800 meters wide), with a pebble beach. "There is a road nearby, but you won't hear it on this recording. It was recorded in autumn 2018 under beautiful blue sky and orange light." Recorded by Jeremy Simoncello.…
 
Baie de Cayola, France reimagined by Andy Lyon. "Initially I was going to use a full on experimental / glitch approach but I find the sea quite mesmerising, it's alluring and mysterious. So I went with a minimal approach to compliment the recording adding tension, dark and light with a hint of glitch. "For me it came out a bit darker than I intende…
