Paving it Over [disquiet0257 – remember noisevember] by Erika Nesse

Not a fractal! This track is made of field recording loops and effects in Ableton Live. It’s based around a recording I made of my street being paved last year. Other recordings: a dog collar, insect chorus, birds and ambient noise behind a strip mall, and breath. I wasn’t quite sure how to structure it, so I picked up an Oblique Strategies card ( and it said “Repetition is a form of change” so I went with that, thank you Brian Eno.

This is for the Disquiet Junto #257, Remember Noisevember.
