Under the train

Dec 09, 2022, 09:00 AM

"The track "Under the train" is based on a recording of an Israeli train in Tel Aviv, recorded by Daniel Rosenhill. In 2020, there were more than 2,000 victims in the European Union related to train accidents. The vast majority of that number are suicides. Idea of full of reverb and delay loops and some sounds from Omnisphere and NI Kontakt synthesizers is to remind us of the grim aspect of trains and raise awareness of suicides - both conversations about it and attempts. 

"The whole field recording provided by Rosehill is used three times during this piece - everytime with smaller and smaller delay feedback. The blurred textures of the train recording are becoming more and more concrete. We return from the gloomy atmosphere to a more "real" recording, to also remember that - especially long train trips surrounded by their sounds - are unique and majestic."
