3479: The Drift

Sports cars drifting reimagined by Cities and Memory.

The original field recording is an exciting listen - two sports cars practising their Fast and the Furious-style drifting in an empty car park at night. If anything, the distance between the cars and the recording device adds to the dynamism, with acres of reverb coming from those tuned-up engines. 

For the reimagined piece, it's all about the engines, and trying to generate some of that same kinetic energy. The basic rhythms are generated by injecting motion into the car engine samples, around which the track is formed: drums are added, basslines in each half, and a series of dynamic, mobile synth lines from the Buchla Easel and ARP 2000 keep the energy levels high. This is The Drift.
