About NYC Rooftops
REA_019 is the culmination of over two years of urban recording in the city that never sleeps. Recorded on rooftops around New York City, this four-hour collection features 20GB and fifty tracks of quad (L/R/Ls/Rs) ambiences.
Each neighborhood and building was carefully chosen to take advantage of the sonic palette the city offers. The collection includes:
- police sirens
- fire truck sirens
- ambulance sirens
- brake squeals
- distant buses
- garbage trucks
- drunk people milling about
- airs (with that signature NYC hum)
- patio parties
Does your post-apocalyptic urban environment need backgrounds? Are you working on that reboot of The Warriors? Look no further. We already went out and played.
This library could not have been made without additional recording from Kris Fenske and countless New Yorkers with roof access.
