Baumwall, reimagined

Oct 30, 2014, 10:22 AM

Nick Campbell, AKA Wages, remixes the sound from Baumwall S-bahn station: "I was drawn to the calming rhythmic nature of this sound clip. The passing cars and trains created a variable drone, that rose and fell, while a light clicking (I'm guessing from the train tracks), created a consistent rhythm that made it all musical.

I approached my remix wanting to create something without altering the natural musical nature of the audio clip. For that reason, I didn't utilize any effects or any sounds not already in the clip. Rather, I took specific moments from the clip to create more concrete rhythms and musical movements. This allowed the remix to still be a total reflection of the sound of Hamburg, totally untouched, just re-organized."
