Shifting the Sonic Space - New Recording Soon Available

The next release for Saturnin Sektor will be available as a special limited edition version on October 17th. Unreal City is a collection of electro-acoustic music primarily based on field recordings made in places as diverse as Savannah, GA and Ireland. The fifth piece ("Graal") is mostly synthesized, although it does include some radically manipulated recordings of other sounds as well.

The track listing is:

1. Ghosts of Savannah (8:34)
2. Unreal City (21:41)
3. Graal (11:16)
4. Unreal City II (9:54)
5. Ghosts of Savannah II (8:20)

The two "Unreal City" pieces are based on the "imaginary landscape" project I worked on in Robert Scott Thompson's advanced computer music class at Georgia State in Spring 2009. The title is a reference to T.S. Eliot's The Waste Land, and includes a a couple of brief excerpts of Eliot himself speaking the phrase.

The two "Ghosts of Savannah" pieces are created from field recordings made in Forsyth Park and Monterrey Square in Savannah on September 18th of this year.

Following the limited release, means of wider distribution of this collection of music will be thoroughly explored.
