I created the "New Industrial" manifesto in order to encourage artists to use field recordings of the city in atmospheric compositions. To accomplish this, I also invited folks to the "New Industrial" Remix Project. Now we have more than 2 hours of music, using only field-recorded sounds of urban environments as source material. Feel free to surf in to have a listen $3 for 2 hours of original industrial/atmospheric music.
Industrial music has changed since its inception, and a new variety has emerged that uses sounds from urban centers as its aesthetic in different ways, often without loud guitars or drum machines. Many of these pieces use actual recordings harvested in cities.
