A Morning in May

Oxford's May Morning celebrations, 1 May 2015 - reimagined by Jase Warner for Cities and Memory.

Jase writes:

"The most notable sounds of the original field recording provided by Stuart, the creator of the Cities and Memory project, feature the performance of a choir as well as the ringing of church bells.

I set out to create something that complimented the structure of a choir, by way of combining various parts of the original recording to make a complete sound; hopefully this approach comes across in the finished piece.

The organic nature of recycling an original field recording and reforming it to make something new has a certain appeal."
