Sound Traveling Through the NYC Underground

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

Instead of a full sound “walk”, I decided to record a subway ride. After the recording, I manipulated the sounds to try and reflect some of the feelings I gathered from the sounds – as opposed to just the naked sounds themselves (and the bits of my voice over). I managed to shave down a 20 minute journey into about 7 minutes.

Sound & the City: Deep Listening

On My Rooftop

In No Particular Order

The constant low pitched whir of the kitchen exhaust piped from the restaurant below.

The random short whoops of a police siren.

One long whoop whooop.

Buses stopping and going, compressing and decompressing to lower their steps for people to enter and exit. The beep that accompanies it before the doors open and close.

Truck idle while parked, continuously throughout and just behind my right shoulder.

Planes going to and fro.

The rustle of the Christmas lights against the coarse rooftop floor.

Cars moving at nominal speed

Squeaking car brakes.

Wind swirling about.

The ding sound of a text message notice on my phone.

A car passing with music playing, possibly a ballad – and it faintly fading.

Another car passing with music louder, maybe a pop song, can’t it’s hard to tell.

The church bells of my phone alarm.

(Apparently it didn’t record while I was sitting still & listening the first time, so I make a 2nd attempt while I was writing down what I heard).
