N. Wood, 900-800

[audio:audiomap/bounte_n-wood-900-800_091115.mp3|titles=W. Augusta – 900-800 blocks – north to south]
Sometimes I think these street recordings are all just of cars whizzing by, but the more I listen to them, the more I hear the subtleties. Like this one going from Augusta to Chicago Ave, the car noise subsides dramatically at the beginning, then picks up at the end as I approach Chicago Ave. And there’s this machine drone in the background that I don’t remember hearing.

Really these are what you hear walking down the street in Chicago. We just tend to tune some noises out after a while, and those noises sound especially odd while sitting in an office chair.
