Overview

Summary

The Hive is bordered on the west by a very large train yard. The trains braking on the tracks makes some very interesting and musical noises. This project aims to record a large sample of this ambient music, with the goal being to do something cool with it. This will likely involve collaborations outside the Hive as well as internally.

Project Updates

August 30th, 2009 - Created Page, Started Planning

I've been kicking around this idea since we opened the Hive's doors the first time. After a couple conversations during the Grand Opening I've decided to start organizing the project in earnest. My intention is to have two branches to the project once we get a satisfactory set of recordings made. The first branch will find interesting sections of the recorded trainyard sounds without any postprocessing. The second involves finding a method to isolate distinct "notes" of the brake noises, and doing something cool with them.
