Reworks Festival 2017 presents
Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki
What kind of a story do the sounds of a city tell about the city itself? To what extend the citizens of Thessaloniki have linked it with specific natural sounds? If Thessaloniki had a soundtrack how would that sound like?
Reworks Festival presents Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki an ambitious project which is supported by the Touristic Organisation of Thessaloniki. Its aim is the creation of the soundtrack for the city by musicians from all over the world based on natural sounds found on various spots around its urban landscape. Reworks announces an open call for music producers and musicians from Greece and abroad to a music dialogue.
How? Through Resound/Echos of Thessaloniki.
The White Tower, the seafront of Thessaloniki, the Byzantine walls, Kapani market and Modiano market are some of the spots that will offer the first musical material to Resound/Echos of Τhessaloniki. Field sounds of those spots have been recorded with the supervision of the act Tendts transmitting the atmosphere of each place. Those recordings alongside some sound loops are available to download.
