Five ambient soundscape compositions based on urban field recordings
NOTES
"Cityscapes" is a suite of five soundscape compositions using individual field recordings of unique urban soundscapes as a germinal idea for each piece.

The sounds were collected from the Washington, DC Metro, a busy Ohio interstate highway, mid-day traffic on Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase, MD, an asphalt resurfacing machine, and the sonic reverberations from an outdoor urban rock festival.

These five works inhabit that place between pure soundscape and invented sound world.
