Due to the presence of a noisy construction site next to my house, I can no longer record acoustic sounds in my studio. To take up arms against this sea of sorrows, I decided to take advantage of the work in progress: in the evening, when the work has stopped, I sneak into the construction site in search of inspiration. The iron meshes used to build reinforced concrete sound amazing. The sounds transmitted by these raw metallic structures can be recorded using contact microphones - microphones that only record the vibrations inside an object, not the ambient sound around. There is a whole sonic world hidden in these rusted skeletons, have a listen!
This soundscape was initially intended for Role Play Gamers: a dark mood setter that they often enjoy. It might not be the best soundscape to listen to when you have anxiety problems, though you may also use it... to tame your feelings.
Beauty that can be found, even in something that looks somber at first glance. Don't be afraid of the shades you will see in the dark. They will be frightening only if you are afraid of them. They will be comforting, if you want them to be so. This sound for example. Is it scary? If you imagine a corridor that gets darker and darker as you move through it, then scary it will be. But, if you picture the opposite - you are leaving the place, not entering - you will end up with a totally different perspective. Soon, these sounds will be part of your past. Give them a final listen, and they will suddenly sound different. Maybe you will even miss them. They now sound almost comforting...
