An Audio Scrapbook
I used to be better at taking a break at what I was doing, enjoying my surroundings and sometimes capturing it on audio to give me an audio recall of that moment in time. Here are a few examples that I recently came across.
The Birds in the Park, Melbourne Australia, Feb 2009.
A gorgeous small park right next to my apartment had a lot of noises going on from birds much different than you find back in Oklahoma.
LAX International Airport, Los Angeles, CA, March 2011
Waiting hours for my connection to Australia.
Construction outside my Window, New York, NY, Oct 2008
Battery Park City in lower Manhattan. Two high rise buildings were going up across the street.
Nathan on the Subway, Talking about Games, New York, NY, Sep 2008
My son used to visit me in NYC, I captured a moment of us riding the subway.
Annoying Bird, Melbourne, Australia, Jan 2011
Bird, every morning, outside my window. Sounded like a cartoon form of sex on a bad box spring.
I recorded Nate when he was 8yo just before going back to Australia. I would make this pop into my music rotation about every 10th song to feel more connected when I was away from him.
