Soundtransit.nl has made a contribiution to the "Blind Spot Sound Art"
project organized by MAD for the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven, the


Derek Holzer/Soundtransit.nl - "Environmental Overlay - Eindhoven CS"


18min30sec (24 Mb)

The sounds used in this piece were selected from the archives of
SoundTransit.nl, a collaborative, online community dedicated to field
recording and phonography. Each shares some aspect of travel--whether by
train, boat, airplane or motorbike--with the others, and they have been
mixed into a continuous soundscape to be overlayed on top of the
existing ambience of the Eindhoven Centraal Station at a matching level.
What one realizes by listening carefully are the radical differences in
the acoustic environments in the world around us, and that a new,
"impossible" or "virtual" sonic situation is created by the combination
of any of these sounds and the environment we inhabit now.
