Collect Call
[ A Metric’s song remixed by Andrea Riderelli ]

working on this remix was this time more complex than usual. hope that worths!…

the orchestration is for 2 b-clarinets, 2 bass clarinets, some flutes, viole, violoncelli and contrabbassi, percussions (timpani, bass drum/grancassa, triangle, half cymbal, celesta, some “noises” of mine) all in a wide and (almost) specular stereo field.

once again, thanks a lot to all the “the freesound project” ( ) people!

this time i used/elaborated these following “noises”:

» 94175__CGEffex__Picking_up_and_putting_down_a_telephone.flac
» 24735__acclivity__DialingTone.wav
» 26834_acclivity_RingerRemixUK.mp3
» 32155_gadzooks_ring_ring.wav
» 29938__Halleck__record_scratch_short.wav
» 3537_luffy_various_sounds_of_a_record_player.wav

thank you to for listening and commenting this new tune!

cheers from rome,
