This is a city-soundscape with the particular idiosyncrasies of the location itself -in this case Berlin Germany- yet, there is a familiarity present that any city dweller will readily recognise. The musical elements are introduced gradually and only in parts and are definitive statements of identity by way of “welcome” to that particular place. The various parts have been so assembled as to form a journey through some of the more definitive qualities of the area as experienced by normal citizens about their everyday business, highlighting aspects that will be familiar to all, the main theme for this work is the interaction between people and machines, in a sense large cities seem to have developed an unique “zoo-mechanicus” identity and the city environment itself is one vast machine consisting of the sum total of all machines and living creatures within its confines, an interdependent collective of animate, inanimate and sentient physical occurrences, with a core of consciousness.
