Remixing Tunnels

Class 01- Mono .

For my first ever attempt in creating a sound piece, I wanted to revisit an old idea I started but never implemented where I went to a subway station and recorded drone like sound qualities within the space. Stitching all the recording together to see if spaces have their own musical quality.


Analyzing the Essex St subway station acoustic condition, and discovering it's musical tone

Final Piece:

While putting this piece together, I have noticed two levels of drone ambience that resonates in the space. Some parts that hit higher pitch ranges like when the subway slows down to stop and other parts hit a low range register of the humming of the escalators. Having noticed these two ranges, I began to play around with it's tonality to highlight the contrast sound elements with in the space.
