Found Tapes in Columbus Park NYC

Columbus Park reimagined by Andy Billington.

"The original field recording was chosen randomly but was perfect. It sounded like it was a great day and I wish I was there. 

"I took the key melody from the opening few minutes of the original and using a combination of plug ins and live instruments improvised over this with oboe, strings, flute and found audio. 

"This was chopped into equal bars and re assembled. Next, I added movement with ring shifter and finally reversed the whole track and pitching down. 

"The final recording sounds like a weathered, dream wave, found cassette tape which I imagined might still be there after everyone went home."
