Office Sounds

I’ve been a bit interested in sonic landscapes, but the technology to capture sonic landscapes seems a bit overwhelming. I can do things with photographs, with illustrations, and with descriptions, but the way microphones work has always baffled me.

Never mind. I tried it yesterday in my office. The air conditioner on the floor above mine drips down onto the window unit in my office.  The window unit in my office hasn’t run since 2009, but it dutifully endures the drip, drip, dripping of the unit above.


The drip goes on everyday, all day. I listen to music to cancel it out.

I’ve captured the drip here on a Blue Snowball and processed the sound using Audacity. It’s my second effort to do something like this. (Click here for my first effort: Trench Sounds)
