The City Rings


Compact Sonic Postcards from Essen!

The very last session on the project is over and we will definitely miss these meetings in the next weeks. It was so much fun.

We fougth with audacity (sometime things got lost or simply our hands slipped away, and suddeny everything was gone)

but we won!

We decided to make them short but effectiv. That was too because we had so many short recordings.

We found that easier (because we could talk about colours and form of sounds) than describing what one could send on a postcard, then we transformated these thoughts with the sounds we recorded at home to these results. We hope, you have fun listening.

And yes, we found the effect section in audacity! Hear what we have done!

After finishing our compositions we found it very easy to talk about pictures we got in our heads when we listened to the postcards of Can Cladellas (you will find the comments in the comments ;-) )

We loved the whole project so much, that we could edit the sounds ourselves, that we could take the recorders at home, that we were working in groups, …
