Put the needle on the record: Paris (Ensemble)

Parisian luggage recording reimagined by Loz Colbert.

"I recorded the sound of my luggage bag on various streets around the world on the RIDE USA/European tour 2019/2020. The idea being that as it was dragged, it was like a stylus playing a record.

"Most of the field recordings were left untouched, but with this recording taken in Paris around midnight on February 13th, I imagined the grooves of the street triggering sounds of 'real' instruments. This was done using processes in Ableton Live. February 13th 2020 was the last time we played to a live audience."
