un_natural field_recordings_04:33:00 is a time-based score for "unnatural" field recordings, or recordings of sounds generated by humans or by human-made objects. These recordings contain amplified voices, digital voices, tones, buzzers, bleeps, and other mechanical and digital sounds heard in cities. Occasionally, "natural" sounds;  animals, insects, water, etc., are audible in the recordings.

Using a palette of recordings, from Berlin, Vienna, Istanbul, and Mexico City, I followed the following score which has four different, thematic sections.

00:00:00 [amplified voices] 01:08:15 [tone_voices] 02:16:30 [u bahn] 03:24:45 [beeps_voice] 04:33:00 [end]

un_natural field_recordings_04:33:00 was recorded in Berlin, DE.
