The heart of Oxford city centre, by Laurence Colbert

fridesThis sound for a Sunday afternoon comes from Oxford sound artist Laurence Colbert,  who sends in an interesting hardware-only remix of Frideswide Square in Oxford. At the heart of the city, the square contains the train station, multiple bus routes and the well-known Said Business School and is a major thoroughfare in the city. Laurence has remixed the sound ‘on site’ using two different sized piezo transducers, and electromagnetic recordings of bus stop electricity for the LED signs, as well as aspects of the first recording. No software effects were used in the remix.
