What is the the musical DNA of a City, could one capture the typical city sounds and build with it?
Marcel Bergmann & Jeroen van Veen recorded city sounds, organized them and compiled them to a new audio track.
Step two they added a traditional composition to it, so It became a piece for two pianos and soundtrack.
Finally live performed with their music, based on the audio track and added extra effect and instrument by improvisation.
In fact they created a three layer composition.
