Description:
The resulting track is from room recordings I made in a basement room being rented illegally as an apartment where the landlord operated a cafe in the floor above. The work is about compromised living situations questioning one’s health, available housing and real estate’s hands in our daily life. processed in ppooll and mixed in audacity.

‘Mapambuzko’ by Michael James Olson

Title: Mapambuzko
Description:
Mapambuzko means dawn in Swahili. Just as dawn gradually changes night into day, so too does a shocking recession give way to inward contemplation, a chance to reexamine our lives and priorities as we grapple with the blind excess of the past.

‘Capitalism is an Empty Factory’ by Obsil

Name: Obsil (Giulio Aldinucci)
Location: Siena (Italy)
Link: www.obsil.com

Title: Capitalism is an empty factory
Description:
This composition can be described as an imaginary (and cerebral) soundscape of the life inside one of the factories that are going to close in Italy (…in Europe, in the World). In other words, as an enormous empty space where just some of the machines are in function; a sort of desert where the human and machine sounds jumble up like gloomy mirages.
