This is the sound my iPod makes when it gets together with my Elevation Dock (thanks to a bad cable). Could’t have said it better myself.

Field Note: Changing Floors – Disquiet Junto 0037

September 18th, 2012 •

My usual process for making field recordings is to carry a microphone around in my pocket and wait for a nice moment to come to me. Since this project required a specific environment I had to come up with a different approach, assumming I didn’t want to spend four days in a department store waiting for the right moment. The strategy I chose was rather opposite of my usual approach which focuses on isolated moments. Instead, I thought I’d move through the chosen space and get a variety of different soundscapes. As it turns out, a large department store is filled with more wind currents than one would think, making recording while moving through the space difficult. The escalator, however, proved to be a relatively calm space so a short trip between floors allowed for a nice way to move through several environments.

This Disquiet Junto project was done in association with the exhibit As Real As It Gets, organized by Rob Walker at the gallery Apex Art in Manhattan (November 15 – December 22, 2012):
