A trip into the past (Holy Cross)
Part of the Sacred Spaces project - find out more at http://www.citiesandmemory.com/sacredspaces
Reimagined by Andy Billington.
"I was drawn to this recording having visited this Church as a child many years ago. I liked the fact that the field recording tells a micro journey as you listen to footsteps across the Church floor, then the playing of the organ and finally the retreat. I thought about everything that the Church had seen. Could the architecture soak up elements from the Services and all of emotions it had seen played out over the years?
I then thought of what all of these would sound like layered over each other (like some of the video clips on You Tube of every episode of Friends played on top of each other).
The field recording was loaded into a failing Mid 90's sampler (name unknown). Random parts were then recorded and a pattern created from the parts spread across the various trigger pads and replayed.
This was then re recorded into an Teenage Engineering OP1and further slowed and pitched down. Finally it was re recorded into Logic 8 and re ordered."
