ten minute soundings

ambient, environmental, and other everyday sounds between here and there, taken in (more or less) ten-minute samples. how well can you get comfortable, settled into a spot in ten minutes? and almost feel like you know it?

  1. approaching a point of departure (october 2010, BART Transbay tube)
  2. Footsteps, voices, idling engines, signals....a honk. And then calm. Waiting. A bicycle whirs by. What's-his-face on the phone drives off. Finally. 10 minutes of streetstuff at Shattuck & University. (18 november 2010)
