Shaping Waves - Piping Systems

The Piping Systems collection consists of close up sound effects, indoor and outdoor ambiences made in three different non-public municipal processing sites: A gas control station, a sewage plant and a waterworks. The sounds include ambiences and stereo contact mic recordings of active gas and water pipes, capturing the various resonating pipes in isolation.  Shaping waves recorded the hissing of gas, low drones of water rushing through massive pipes, and the sounds of various stages of sewage processing, recorded indoors and outdoors in multiple locations and rooms throughout the three facilities. Total play time of all recordings is just under 2 hours. Gear: Sound Devices 633, 2 x Neumann TLM 103, 2 x Sennheiser MKH 8040, 2 x Barcus Berry 4000
