Ozymandias (Emirates Airline)

Aug 01, 2016, 02:06 PM

Reimagined by Peter Nagle.

""Ozymandias" is a track based on a field recording made on the Emirates Airline, a cable car in East London. I made the track using a combination of stretching, sampling and processing of the source track. As a grandiose and expensive white elephant, the Emirates Airline embodies the legacy of Boris Johnson's mayoralty. Johnson has since gone on to lead the UK to its most disastrous decision for at least a century. I hope that the title from Shelley needs no further explanation."
