Music for Forgotten Places

Wandering around a city we might encounter these forgotten places - a vacant lot, an old ruin, a building no one lives in anymore. These spots always fascinate me, make me fantasize about their history and former inhabitants. Inspired by their mystique, Oliver Blank composed pieces of music for them - Music for Forgotten Places. 

Visitors and residents can call a phone number found on a sign at the forgotten place they pass, and listen to its music. A mindful moment in a busy city. The project is created in Coruña, Spain, but Oliver will visit cities across the world to discover and compose for their forgotten places as well. 

Find out more and listen to a piece of music at musicforforgottenplaces.com.

Reminds me of Stereopublic: crowdsourcing the quiet , but on a smaller (more personal) scale. Nice.

Nice! I do a similar thing I guess (only embedded) with my Sonic Graffiti pieces: mrunderwood.co.uk/news/sonic-graffiti

Thanks for the tip, Mark, that's also worth a post!

Same goes for your project, Mr Underwood.
