Field recordings from Ghent and Istanbul

For ‘Project Yolda’ we started to listen to various field recordings from Istanbul and Ghent. First, with our instruments, we mimiced these field recordings. ‘Covering’ these field recordings made us listen better and as we were working, throughout the trip, we even got familiar with the soundscape of foreign places. We also interpreted some field recordings more freely. These elements are the ingredients for our show on Saturday 8 November in De Centrale. If you’re curious about how we musicalized and interpreted this material, don’t hesitate to come out and listen.
