the recordings go friday pm thru sunday pm
On this cassette are two days of ambient sound recordings, each originally about twenty-four hours
long and sped up to play back at about 128 times the original speed. The recordings were made in my
studio, which is located in West Baltimore City.
I was interested in hearing what was too low and slow for me to normally hear, or to imagine how I
would hear things if I were an insect. Since sound can give an indication of length (sound travels
approximately 1 foot per millisecond), my height of 5'11" (180cm) would become about half an inch
(1.3cm) tall when multiplied by the rate of these recordings. As far as I can deduce, the high pitches
are from cars idling outside.
