i am sitting in a bus…

by codenamehkproject

after a monthly practice of field recording, i find out the sound from the bus is the most interesting. it seems i can’t get anything from the telephone pickup mic on the ferry, the tram and even the red minibus. so maybe i will try focus on my sonic experiences from the bus practice. by using the telephone pickup mic, i can get a swelling kind of sound whenever the bus changes its speed. somehow, the sound records the movement i encounter. the everyday transportation contributes me the spatial practice of the sound i have. while Alvin Lucier’s trying to do it with tape loops & reverb; i’m here trying to focus on the EM wave we encounter during the transportation. the practice will finally end when the bus is at the terminal station, or, the day we run out of fuel.
