"Steve Roden composed Resonant Cities as a project for Kunst Radio Wien (Art Radio Vienna) using only field recordings of tiny details from cities all over the world. The following lines from a text Steve wrote about this work pefectly describe what it is about: '.. searching through my library of field re-cordings for material for this project, i realized that my visits to most cities are a kind of hunting activity to gather these inconsiderable audio things - and indeed as i listened, a lot of these sounds they conjured up some very strong memories of moments when i have been in a city yet felt outside of 'city', as though an intimate listening or soundmaking activity can completely take one outside of their immediate environment to a place where the sound one is listening to begins to define the parameters of space. even quiet sounds, if one listens closely and intimately can direct one's attention away from the existing 'scenery'..
