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

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?

I'd take some machine shop recordings from M.Vision!

Got a new Mania track that features a grinder. Doesn't sound very good but you can tell what it is. MD recorder is on its last leg.

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".

WHAT NEEDS SHREDDING? Top praise for the pass-along. Concrete in a Steel Drum - fucking KILL sound.

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.

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...

Shredding a torpedo was pretty cool. Too bad the sound quality sucks.

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.
