A Soundscape of Ocean, City, and Music

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 29 min
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

This is a rather interesting mix of city sounds, ocean waves, and music. Clearly edited using bits of ambient recordings, many of which may have also been included as part of KPFA’s World Ear Project, this recording goes beyond those simple field recordings by incorporating music, chanting, news broadcasts, to create a very evocative soundscape. With its origins lost in obscurity all that is known about this unique recording is that it is an excellent example of the sort of seemingly aleatoric compositions that were quite popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and which can still entrance the attentive listener today.
