A bit of support for the one of the most neglected areas of this blog, the Machinery pages. Here’s a set of three sounds many of us don’t pay much attention to.
Let’s start with a disc-shaped bus joint, connecting the two sections of a bus. Its creaky sound reminds of a horse’ neigh. Note the whoosh sounds at the end of the recording made by the portable ticket validators operated by a bus conductor. This recording was made on route 23 somewhere in the field half way between Sergiyev Posad and Peresvyet.
Next, the sound of the stage being dismantled. This wooden platform was used during the Youth Day festival held at the Blinnaya Mountain in Sergiyev Posad this June. When the event is over the screwdrivers come in.
Finally, the mixer. Recorded in central Yaroslavl in 200 km to the North East from Sergiyev Posad, it sounds like a musical instrument.
Recorded June 2nd, 2011 in Sergiyev Posad and August 20th, 2010 in Yaroslavl (MS-TFB-2 and CA-14o)
