Water+Gas_Cover

SUBJECT

Gas and water running through massive and tiny pipes, at three non-public processing sites.

DESCRIPTION

This sound 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.

We 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.

REVIEWS

“David Kamp and SHAPINGWAVES team have taken pipe ambience to a new level with Piping Systems. This very specific library could flesh out the duct work of an entire interactive spaceship with pipes to pump air, gas and sewage through the lungs, veins and intestines of the ship.”
