On a related note to Stanier Black Five, she just made an installation of earthquake sounds which she recorded during the quakes in New Zealand http://www.stuff.co.nz/entertainment/music/7194063/Quake-recordings-turned-into-music?fb_action_ids=10151716288101542&fb_action_types=og.likes&fb_source=other_multiline

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;

In Boston we have the New England Phonographers Union who go around and record stuff at various places around Boston. 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.

Disappointed with the Runaway Train. Thought it was going to be so much more.

I would like to go back in time to see/hear this: http://buckcreek.tripod.com/traincrash.html

A friend will be sending me 3 train LPs soon. Pretty psyched about them after listening to Damion Romero's edit that is linked to earlier in the thread.

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.

That gives me an idea when the Canfield fair starts up. Thanks. I've begun to use background noise recorded on my cell phone from the factory I work at from time to time in recent Arseterror recordings. Next level shit.

Yeah, I've taped our old 1974 square baler. Nice and rhythmic/ regular, but good and dirty, w/ plenty going on. Also, a barley roller and or the inside of a slurry tanker were nice sources I rember playing about with.

In my shop visits one older guy who works for industry and is interested in engines and machines. And he mentioned he does also sound recordings of engines. But not an "artists", nor never "published" and of the stuff. There probably is quite a lot of such people. Just friend linked youtube....

Somehow doesn't feel like the same thing, when it's not on record, but a lot of good sounds nevertheless!

Are there any recordings that make exceptional use of a submarine dive alarm (LIKE THIS)?  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?

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.

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 like that first video especially the build-up when cranking the engine.

The only thing that would make those videos better is if the engines blew up:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_z217xjY6vY
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9J91Iq52Bk

That last one isn't an explosion but the sound is pretty awesome.

This one doesn't explode  but a man can dream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pwvS8_H5rKs
