Musictrade single release Duration 10:16 Released on 2007-07-21 24bit 88.2kHz audiophile version
This experimental ambient track takes you for a 10 minute sonic journey in an underground train heading south from the centrum of Stockholm along Röda linjen ('Red route'). It is based on a binaural field recording made by Swedish Musictrade artist Frags using Soundman OKM microphones. The field recording runs in real time as a background for the song, the underground stations with their recorded announcements establishing natural breakpoints for the flow of the music. There are numerous ethnic groups living in the southern suburbs of Stockholm, to be heard in the recording as a babelic mixture of languages.
