This year my monthly challenge is to create a piece of electronic music using only one short field recording to create the whole piece on the theme of Imaginary Creatures. The sample or field recording will have a loose connection to the creature, which in this case is a police siren.

Traditionally, a Banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology who heralds the death of a family member, usually by wailing, shrieking, or keening. I’ve taken a few liberties as my Banshee is quite sad as it is trapped in a fiery lava pit, shrieking and moaning, trying to escape.
