Katrina 43:37


synnack Katrina is a ~45 minute experimental, dark ambient release by synnack which explores the time period surrounding Hurricane Katrina and the subsequent impact on those from the affected area. This release combines recordings of analog modular synthesis and Max for Live devices with field recordings compiled and calaloged between 2005 and 2011 - many of which are actually audio tracks from amateur camcorder footage taken by friends of my family during and after the storm. All recordings were combined into a single Ableton Live set, and the resulting composition was created from a single take of a studio performance in December 2011, with final mixing and mastering completed in early 2012.

Hurricane Katrina of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season was one of the five deadliest in the history of the United States. Hurricane Katrina formed over the Bahamas on August 23, 2005 and made its second landfall as a Category 3 storm on the morning of Monday, August 29 in southeast Louisiana. (source)

At least 1,836 people died in the storm and the subsequent floods. $81.2 billion (2005 U.S. dollars) in damage orrured as a result of the storm and failure of the goverment to respond appropriately, making it the costliest tropical cyclone in U.S. history. These statistics alone are staggering, but perhaps only tell part of the story of what was lost in 2005. (source)

synnack Katrina is part of the Natural Disaster Series by Force of Nature which provides a creative outlet to explore the battle between humanity and nature's destructive face.

You can listen to this release in lo-fi form in its entirety on synnack.com and SoundCloud, but it is available for purchase on any digital format by paying any price ($1 minimum) on bandcamp. All proceeds from sales of this release on bandcamp will go to the New Orleans Musicians Relief Fund: www.nomrf.org.
