Notes

"The subway trip is a dynamic soundscape, in conflict with the static soundscape that is enclosed by the act itself. This is the function of the mechanical nature, and of the repetitive gesture typical of post-industrial societies. Therefore, some daily sounds will recreate in a circular fashion, such as mechanical sounds, the doors of trains, the train brakes, and so on. Over time we can see that in fact the so-called dynamic soundscape is actually a static soundscape... with every day that passes it becomes more like itself."

On August 6, 2013, Giannico recorded the entire route of the 'B' line of the subway in the city of Rome, that connects the 'Rebibbia' station with the 'Laurentina' station, and the 'B1' line that connects the 'Bologna' station with the 'Conca D 'Oro' station... Audio samples collected were manipulated and transformed electronically, and enriched with synth and/or musical instruments such as guitars, piano, violins. The result is "Metrophony", which is also an art installation.

TRS047 comes in two distinct versions. This listing is for the digipak edition, in an edition of 150 copies. There is also a deluxe limited version in an edition of just 75 copies.
