Surreal tape collages culled from field recordings of street musicians in Istanbul, Athens and Rome in 2011. String and percussion instruments and urban bustling sounds processed and abstracted through various cassette loop mechanisms resulting in disorienting, hypnotic musique-concrete compositions. Severely abstracted and polyrhythmic mutants of the original scenarios, which both alienates and distillates their inherently urban & chaotic essences.
