Title: sound of engine & industrial mechanisms
Post by: FreakAnimalFinland on May 04, 2010, 07:55:38 PM
message from Vivenza topic:

This makes me think about what how far goes the connection of industrial music vs. simply the "industrial sound" available? I mean, there are a lot of recordings, what never meant to be "music" as such (at least I believe), but they serve very special fanatics who like to listen for example sound of certain trains.
For example, when you walk to NEdS industrial/noise shop in Tokyo, you see photo of old steam engine train framed among the records. And then next thing when you casually browse 2nd hand vinyls of Konstruktivists, Orchestra of Skin & Bone and such, you suddenly have in your hand some, possibly BBC production of  XXXX model steam engine train driving in rain and thunder. And few other less specific train sound vinyl albums. It kind of amazes me, that there has been need of mass production of gatefold double LP of specific train model, and that it happens in thunder. I was told the owner of shop is enthusiast of such things. During my life I have met couple train fanatics. They go to spot these things in real life, investigate the models, engines, and whatever. And never asked, but I'm sure they like to listen the sound of engines.
In art section of recommended sites, there is a link to german industrial photography site where are mp3 files of various engines. Nothing is assembled to sound as art. It is merely the existing sound, untreated and raw, to be heard.
While Vivenza even at his most conceptual mode might try to be "just sound of machines", there is always the artistic touch in it, with effects and adjustment. I do wonder about level of enthusiasm for pure unaltered and effect free industrial sound. Machines and engines as they are, without layering unless machines happen to operate in same space.
I do regret I didn't use my invitation of Imatra steel factories when I had opportunity to go record it. I also regret I didn't have my portable recorder when catched NYC sky scraper construction field in full action. It was like "vivenza" happening in massive scale. You didn't need effects or composition. Hundreds of guys with powertools, trucks, huge steel elements, wires, hammers, whatever.. in full force create colossal sound, what would have been simply album worthy to publish if properly captured. I do think that there is most certainly problem to sell just... hmmm "happening". Something which isn't artists work. Except pushing the "rec" button.

Well, I guess this whole thing would warrant topic of its own, but those who doubt about the scale of recordings, check this:
http://www.steamindex.com/library/handford.htm

(http://www.steamindex.com/media/transacord.jpg)

Well, I bought one of train recordings. It's a Japanese Victory company release from 1968. And damn it was good! Sound is pretty dirty, but very clear in detail nevertheless. Recordings focus on steam engine train. Several tracks on both sides, which combines different sounds. Sometimes you'll just heard the rumbling engine. Hissing steam, clatter of various metal objects. Sometimes natural sounds of thunder or wind. Sometimes distant singing of working men building train tracks. Most often the colossal siren of trains. Considering the age of recording, they must have gone through serious efforts to get it sound this good. Some artistic vision about what type of sounds to capture. There is even moment of the ancient japanese traditional music being played while train goes on distance, slowly approaching and overriding the music (which is just obscure percussions and nearly random sounding whistle) and then disappearing to horizon. With proper amplification and speakers that are able to produce low bass frequencies, few moments of the LP are really heavy. Recording has managed to capture the feeling of pressure of tons and tons of steel and steam. Intense. Really intense! Now I just really regret I didn't grab all those LP's what I had a chance! Pure industrial music!

Sounds really interesting. I wonder what kind of equipment they have used back then, placing microphones etc. But what really blows my mind is the exact same thing you mentioned in the quote that they actually have recorded these and made them all the way to well produced vinyls. I am sure they also offer some great source material! I really need to do some searching, I'd love to hear some of these works in the full lenght. It is really cool they have the sounds from passing by villages etc, you can really close your eyes and be one with the journey I guess.

I bought a vinyl similar to this one (must be a different edition) in Belgium, also very nice for sound samples. I think the quality wasn't that bad either. I always keep my eyes open for vinyls of this kind when I'm at car boot sales, etc.

All the other LP's were also Japanese LP's. Decision was based simply on packaging. This was gatefold, with inserts, including photos of locations/trains/engines. There is no english text is any of these.
I'm not surpriced about good quality of late 60's recordings in some ways, because music / studio recordings of the time of course are often supreme compared to standards of today. But I'm impressed by the task what it must have been to make it, since not talking of easily portable DAT, harddrive recorders etc. with built in mic's.

This differs from the "sound effect" albums, because it is clearly not just sound effect. One can found those movie/radioplay backing effect LP's and CD's basically anywhere. Sounds exists as pieces of documents of sound & location, not for purpose to be used anywhere else (although they can be)?  Especially in Japan, there seems to be lots of train enthusiasts. You find several train magazines in shops. I'm sure some of readers prefer to listen this kind of stuff.

Sounds really interesting. I wonder what kind of equipment they have used back then, placing microphones etc.

guestimation would be that they used similar gear as the lomaxes when they did fieldrecordings of those old crusty blues farts way back when. ive seen pictures of the setup. it could fit in to the trunk of a car. speaking of those things, I believe  folkways records has lps of at least junkyards and I could imagine factories as well but I cant remember for sure. unless your ridgid cunts and are ready to timetravel a little bit theres cool works songs on the discography as well. basically the same thing.

I get to go in actual machine shops and factories in a little while to make some  recordings, yay for me.

I would love to get my hands on stuff like this. As long as it's good, long recordings and not some short snippets meant as sound effects (like Mikko said earlier). Indeed, Folkways has several albums worth of trains and other location recordings, for example

(http://media.smithsonianfolkways.org/images/album_covers/SF270/FW06140.jpg)

This next one is a classic, I've often been tempted to order it. Perhaps this thread will serve as encouragement to do it finally:

I recall hearing on the radio one time that when The Beatles came to Melbourne that the concert was recorded for a live album release. Apparently the continuous sound of screaming teenage girls was so loud it drowned out the band's playing in the subsequent recordings. As it happened, the recording was used, with studio versions of the songs dubbed over it. I would dearly love to have the original live recording; imagine an hour's worth of screaming teenage girls.

really great LP, lots of industrial/steam/machine sounds.  the best part is that each track is a lock groove.  i've sampled many bits of the record for my own material.

My dad has been the planning process lately on finally building his own steam train.  The rideable miniatures are a crazy subculture of builders.  You have to have a license and boiler inspections every year.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oFy1nabI1g

Not for my 'promotion', but for reference; nothing compares to doing it live with your favourite engine and a proper PA:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEqv4jpL18I&feature=related

But... nitro dragster races are still truly the epitome.  I have been fortunate enough to record raw sources of them from the engine pits in the past.  You literally fall to your knees from the sound which would be very hard to mimic via any recording and even a massive PA.



Title: Re: sound of engine & industrial mechanisms
Post by: nyarluna on May 10, 2010, 08:00:13 AM
I love the sounds of steam engines,nitro dragsters, pneumatics, 2 stroke engines, jackhammers, shredders ect, all of which are  fantastic sounds.

Would be a great series to have specific records of actual industrial sounds with field notes covering sound sources and operations of recording...

Really partial to the shredders:

Good ol' State Fairs are great for the tractor pulls.  The jet turbines, giant old modified blocks, and the diesels each have something special to offer.  The way a diesel can roar, then hit a sweet spot where it literally goes silent, and then charge into a high-pitched whistle...weird and cool.

Stanier Black 5 (aka Jo Burzynska) an old friend of mine used to do noise shows using only train records. We had one record in common, possibly the best one ever, called "Trains In Trouble", which is recordings of old sick trains on their last journey to the junkyard, fucking intense, sounds like New Blockaders

Post by: bsquires on June 13, 2012, 09:20:37 AM
Recently was asked to put a record of 60s steam trains called 'Castles and Kings' on to CD for a friend. Much to my surprised it reminded me of Con-dom 'The Eighth Pillar' - I had it coming out of my hi-fi and slightly delayed out of my PC speakers - give a nice phase shift effect. It's another of those Transcord releases... nice...

Due to being a machinist for over 20 years I have logged hours of recordings of machinery in action. I often thought of distributing these recordings to other sound manipulators. Once reworked the results would be compiled. Would a project like this interest anyone?

Also, not sure if anyone mentioned this, but this site is very fun
http://www.ssiworld.com/watch/
could be a neat idea for a compilation, get people to make tracks using only those sounds...
Including such classics as:

Boat

SSI's Dual-Shear™ M70 shredder processing a boat.

and

Arcade Game "Asteroids"

SSI's PRI-MAX™ PR-4000 shredding the 1980's classic arcade game, "Asteroids".

For three years I used to work for a company producing huge industrial shredding mills for the recycling industry. My co-workers thought I was a real weirdo connecting contact microphones & doing field recordings when we tested different materials. Managed to get some unique sounds there that I've never managed to recreate. Maybe I should return this summer and make some new recordings...
Some of the recordings can be heard on "Furyfication" collaboration LP with Proiekt Hat.

Post by: ARKHE on June 17, 2012, 02:42:57 PM
Managed to record, with my cell phone so the resolution is piss poor, the beat of a three-story high pressing machine at an assembly factory I worked at for a few months until they kicked me out. I recorded it from the office right next to it so it's heard through the thin plaster walls, made the table shake, heavy as hell. Didn't own any proper recording equipment back then so that was what could be used. I think it's used onthe first Pestdemon tape, not sure though. The factory produced car parts, mainly chairs.


That SSI site was amazing. Some noise musician should apply for a job there...

Good friend and amazing musician Damion Romero (known for his earth-moving heavy tonal work under his own name, and previously as Speculum Fight) offered up a recording of a radio show he’d done over 8 years ago playing exclusively Steam Engine records, something he has an impressive collection of. So that brings us here, where you can hear some of his favorite sounds from of these now extinct beasts.

Wish they'd repress that on vinyl but tape isn't bad; easier to use in your own work...

I've thought about going out to the local recycling plant & sitting in the parking lot to record. Last time I was out there, there was
good stuff going on plus photos of piles of scrap would be nice.

For the past few months I've been working in a woodshop and there's all kinds of loud machines and other related sounds for ten hours a day. Probably the most interesting soundwise is a three-head wide belt sander that shaves off .035" from the cabinet doors that we run through it. Makes really great sounds when one of the belts explode, haha! I've also worked in print shops with ancient dinosaur 4-color newspaper presses, and those old things make quite an impressive racket.

I've been wanting to make some field recordings, but all I have is this microphone that plugs into the bottom of my iPod and it obviously isn't very good quality: http://i.zdnet.com/blogs/xtrememac-micromemo-nano.jpg

As someone else already mentioned, co-workers and bosses think it's incredibly strange and probably immediately think "Weirdo, he must be on drugs". Really, that's the only explanation some people can imagine.

If anyone is to visit the Tate Modern in  London there is a video on the third floor called "A History of Nothing" by Eduardo Paolizzi which contains samples of industrial mechanisms.

I work at a train overhauling facility that was built in 1853 and has some suitably ancient machinary in it and a seemingly infinite amount of sampling opportunities.

I provided samples of an old (not sure exactly how old but easy older than anyone here) German hydraulic spring testing machine that was used on this release;

I provided samples of trains in montion for this more P.E. orientated release;

So far they've been to two water treatment plants and recently just had a concert. I've talked to a few of them but I have been too busy to participate as of yet.

Are there any recordings that make exceptional use of a submarine dive alarm (LIKE THIS (http://www.policeinterceptor.com/sounds/H9%20horn%202.wav))?  The opening track to the new Yen Pox album hints at it.  I don't believe it is actually there, but I associate some of those sounds with it.  Not necessarily looking for it directly sampled, as in an intro or outro, but has anyone manipulated it into a rhythm or huge, horn-like sound?

I would suggest to use a cassette dictaphone, the type that takes full size tapes. I've had the best results from Panasonic as they seem to use condenser mics as standard on most of their dictaphones. Zoom digital recorders also do a decent job with the limiter off.

This thread is absolutely thrilling for me.  Thanks to everyone who has contributed. 

I'm currently working on a piece that is based off of the sounds of car engines dying.  There are several diagnostic websites such as this one:  http://mycarmakesnoise.com/

I wonder if I can request suggestions for actual "rhythmic noise" artists in here without being accused of "hijacking".  I don't think it's too far off topic.  I'm not asking for Vivenza, but artists who actually build compositions around machine-like sounds, repetition, etc. I feel like a minority in liking gradually shifting loops and deep repetition, and I think "rhythmic  noise" should be a genre for NAMANAX instead of this "beat shit" that people call "rhythmic noise" or "power noise".   CM Von Hausswolff has done excellent work in this area too, also "Machine Listener" out of Ohio. 

I have heard a few artists who use little mechanical devices and things, but I've not heard anyone match the level of enjoyment I get from N.U. Unruh's (Einsturzende Neubauten) mechanical bell machines and things.  I'd love to hear more of stuff like that. 

I used to work in a bread factory, and the hiss of the conveyor belts and steam packaging devices were kind of disappointing.  I still love the sound of  a trash compactor though, and especially when a pizza place gets a brand new oven with a lifting door; it screeches and screams until it is thoroughly broken in.  I've stumbled into places with new pizza ovens at least 3 times, each time without a recording device.

I work for Wargaming so they paid me to record tank engines last year. Hoping to record a lot more this year and possibly some ammunition as well.

Here are some photos & videos from the session:

recently I watched a tank documentary and the "former" nazi was describing it. he was a 17 year old tank commander. they would fight for two or three days come back, fuel up and go again. I believe they were full of pharmacy grade amphetamines.

I think he was talking about the battle of kursk. something like 10 000 tanks!!!

Speed - The fuel of choice for warriors and Repo Men alike.

From tanks to the firefighter's saviour on occasion, AKA the PPV fan. Sounds nice on idle. Enhanced by the acoustics of a large and cold appliance bay with a hard floor.

Those are great. I love that there's a split second of not knowing if it's going to start or explode.

I would consider the mini-gun an "industrial mechanism":

Demolition & construction sounds:

That minigun video is fantastic, a sublime piece of machinery.

Recently stumbled across the amazing work of one Leo Okagawa. Like whole-hearted plunge into the sounds of engines and industrial mechanisms, divested of human context. Documentarian approach, deliberate execution. Straight-ahead industrial-strength dirge, heavy on slow, monotonous, low-end rumbling, curdling, burbling. Tasty dips into external concrete sources, wide open atmospheres, rendering grey and grim indulgence in what is, to me, an almost perfect, and perfectly drear, aesthetic.
