CD + Digital Album

CD release on LOM label (Bratislava, Slovakia), November 11, 2020

Sound compositions based on field recordings I made while traveling in 2018-2019. Sound sketches from Toronto, Naples, Geneva, Batumi, Dresden, Strasbourg, Marseille and Saint Petersburg.

If I was a birder I would haunt marches and reefs in search of the perfect dawn chorus, but as a city dweller I'm listening to the secret music of the city: voices of passersby, spectacles and meeting points, close-ups and crowd scenes. How to join the crowd again without the fear of strangers?

"Agora" is a Greek word that literally means "gathering place" or "assembly". The agora was a central public space in ancient Greek city-states.

Sounds and compositions by Alëna Korolëva
Recorded in 2018-2019, composed in summer 2020
