Fun With Sound

Gothamist had a link this morning to a fun little tool/toy that provides a way to experience the soundscape of New York City. It was produced by the Tenement Museum.

The idea is that by linking 5 of the available recordings, which then play on a recursive loop, you can create a piece of "music" based on street noise. You can arrange whether the sounds play from the left or right speaker, and what volume they play at compared to the other sounds. It's great fun! Go play with it here.

I recommend Mrs. Davis, The malfunctioning Microphone, Under FDR Drive, Busker in Spring St Station, and "Keep It Tight!" as a great combination.
