Tram Music

Had this piece floating around in the “archive” for ages. Its based on some electromagnet recordings I made on the trams between Wythenshawe and Chorlton when I was working on the Echo Trace project with Andrea Pazos for Brighter Sound last May. For the basic idea of how to do this/how it works and a million other amazing projects check out Nick Collins’ Handmade Electronic Music. Later I added several layers of tuned guitar feedback and mixed these with the modulating tram tone signal picked up the electromagnets. I’m going to be working on a new project involving this process in June and July; more on this soon.
