From Keck Science Center to Pitzer

 walking on road (Keck)

walking on sand (Pitzer)

Pitzer campus

Recording Setup: This sound was recorded on Thursday, October 7, 2021, at 12:00 AM on the route from Keck to Pitzer. The TASCAM DR-40 microphone was carried while I walked. 

Description: The recordings were split into three parts in order to show the difference between how texture shaped the sound. For example, the sound of walking on the road is hard, heavy and precise, while the sound of walking on the sand is scattered and light. The recording was done outside and in action. The keynote is the natural sound (bird, wind), the signal is the sound of passing cars.
