The wild geese of New York
Staying in New York for our next sound, a gaggle of wild geese honking on a baseball diamond, sent in from Brooklyn by Samuel Kahler.
Aircraft fly overhead and leaves rustle over the frozen ground.
What direction to take when reimagining such an open sound?
Sound artist Heiko Jay, who recently deconstructed a sound from Liverpool for us, decided to create a form of goose-based sub-bass minimal techno (there’s a phrase I never thought I’d write!), which turns the honks into percussive strikes, sounding almost like stringed instruments, while all the time a low sub builds and growls.
It’s a unique take on the sounds of nature – enjoy!
