Tram tracks – a piece for The Bridgewater Hall

by caro on July 25, 2017 · 0 comments

Here’s a little thing wrote for the 25th anniversary of the trams in Manchester and the 21st birthday of The Bridgewater Hall.

I took a ride from Chorlton tram stop direct up to Rochdale Train Station, recording sounds on the way using my new Rode iXY stereo mic which I am quite pleased with. It has that characteristic Rode transparency and sparkle. I also interviewed kind and trusting tram passengers waiting on the platform.

The piece was then produced using only the recordings collected on that journey, using my electronic music production tools and techniques.

For more info on the project and to listen to the other 92 tram stop’s creative responses, please proceed to The Bridgewater Hall website.
