Over 24 hours, I make sound recordings in a single location. Then these recordings are edited together into a short (8 to 12 minute) piece that follows the rhythm of a day from midnight to midnight.
The pieces are available on a DVD with 4 channel sound. The video part contains titles and an indication of the changing time of recording. The public can move through or sit in the space and hear a realistic 3-dimensional representation of the soundscape, but compressed into a very short timescale.
I have produced versions in Barcelona, Den Haag, Rome, Guangzhou, Paris, Vienna and Istanbul. Each city, each location sounds completely different, but also the rhythm changes from place to place.
The image is from a production photo during recording in Den Haag.
The sound here is a stereo excerpt from the Den Haag version.
