about

Cities and Memory: Oblique Strategies sees more than 60 artists all over the world reinterpret and reimagine field recordings, using Eno and Schmidt’s Oblique Strategies cards as creative inspiration for their reworking of the original source sound.

Each artist selected a source field recording to reimagine, and was then allocated two Oblique Strategy cards, which they used to guide, inform and inspire their reimagined version of the recording.

Thus, the project builds a whole world of new sounds, created and divined by chance and oblique inspiration.

This album is a selection of highlights from the project that work particularly well together as an album and a listening experience in their own right.
