Duet for Jupiter-8 and muezzin

Reimagined by Cities and Memory.

For this piece, we've taken the stop-start nature of the call to prayer as a starting point, and wanted to highlight something of the disjointed staccato feel, but also the sense of calm generated by the simple act of repetition. We've limited ourselves to one instrument, the Jupiter-8 synth, creating a series of repetitive notes that enter into a dialogue with the muezzin's call, depicting what this particular sonic experience felt like to us as we were recording it.
