Reworks Festival 2017 has presented Resound/Echoes of Thessaloniki, an ambitious project that aims to create a soundtrack for the city by musicians from all over the world based on natural sounds found in various spots around its urban landscape.
The White Tower, the seafront of Thessaloniki, the Byzantine walls, Kapani market and Modiano market are some of the spots that will offer the first musical material to Resound/Echoes of Τhessaloniki. Field sounds of those spots have been recorded alongside some sound loops, all of which are available to download here.
To participate, download the audio files and create your own proposal, track or remix. Send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org placing as subject the title “Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki”, including your name (or artist name) and a link where we can download your track. Compositions will be uploaded to the project’s pages on Mixcloud and Soundcloud.
The participant with the selected composition, chosen by a selection of artists including Larry Gus, And.id, Cayetano, Tendts, and Ison (NON) will have the chance to play at Reworks 2017 and participate on the committee in the next edition of Resound/Echoes of Thessaloniki.
The application deadline is August 27, 2017.
