This work consists of field recordings but while the recordings were taken in a railway area it should be called urban recordings or something like this.
Aural perception of railway’s ambient space in first track is more contemplative, clear and aerial. Birds, rain, children’s voices fringed massive sounds produced by railway coaches and diesel locomotives.
The second track looks a bit abstract. Various sounds of industrial nature, mechanical noises, creaks make it more noisy, heavier in sound, and it looks like acoustic snapshot of true industrial ambience.
All recordings have been made at a poplar alley near Zheleznodorozhnaya (Railway) street, Kamensk-Uralsky, Russia in October-November 2014.
