Cityscape – Brixia is an auditory tale whose subject is the city where I currently live: Brescia (Brixia is the ancient name), in northern Italy.
The recordings have been taken approximately between 2016 and 2018. The fields are different facets of the same city: different seasons, different weather, different environments. Crowded highways with cars and busses opposed to calm meadows with crickets in the night.
The result is an continuously changing sound scape that guides the listener through an auditory tour. The journey starts on a warm, cozy morning and continues through a refreshing rain that suddenly becomes a storm. As the day approaches an end, the traffic noise slowly fades away giving way to a familiar atmosphere. It’s time to relax. In the evening, a quiet place to spend some time. Then comes the night, and a soft blanket of snow covers everything in silence.
