Sax and the City - The Lonely Busker (Field recording + Remix)

by ChameleonMusic

Original field Recording:
“AMSTERDAM Leidseplein saxophone busker and trams”

Re-Imagining:
“Sax and the City -The Lonely Busker”

I’ve tried to ‘get inside the head’ of the sax-playing busker…the piano motifs and synth lines are meant to represent his thoughts. Beyond his head-space you hear the dislocated ebb and flow of the city; even the sound of his own saxophone is in the distance as if he’s performing automatically and not really focused on it.

• Piano sound comes from Kontakt 5 – ‘Giant’ module.
• Synth line was created in Reaktor’s Prism.
• Original recording was mainly processed using CamelSpace by Camel Audio:
o Reverb
o Stereo Delay
o Auto pan
o BP filter ( ongoing LFO style modulation of settings that ‘push’ and ‘pull’ at the city sounds)
• Mastered with Izotope ozone 4.
