The results of today's experimentation in the physical computing lab (192kbps MP3, 0'52"; warning: awful noise). The circuit involved a CD4093, with each oscillator in the chip modulating the next. There were two binary dividers in there somewhere as well, and the whole thing was controlled with a couple of photoresistors. (Circuit suggested by Handmade Electronic Instruments, which is an awesome book for people interested in analog electronics and circuit bending-type stuff.)

Two saxophone players, one on the west side of Astor Place, and one on the east side. I'm not sure if they were intending to play together - I don't think their spatial configuration would have allowed them to hear one another. In any case, I sat smack dab in the middle and hit record.

I was in one of the cheapo vegetable stores on Main street. This is one of their refrigerators - it was, I believe, keeping the broccoli cold. I stood there for a few minutes with my microphone out and pretended to examine the soda. (I think I ended up buying two liters of Coke.)

More sounds from summer - July 4th, 2004, to be precise. This is the tail end of New Rochelle's fireworks extravaganza as practiced annually over the Sound. I kind of like the way this recording came out.

The whole collection is here.

(Back from hiatus, for a few weeks at least!)

I recorded this last August in the lot behind the apartment complex parking lot. Summer around here is hot, humid, miserable - but at least it has good sound effects. Winter is completely silent, and I'm glad it's finally over.
