Two field recordings of traffic sound from Ackerstraße/Bernauer Straße and from Ackerstraße/Torstraße, Berlin.

Both recordings are radically changed in duration and in tone pitch. First, traffic sounds are replayed in quick-motion. After 30 seconds, it starts to fade over to traffic sounds in slow-motion.
These modifications are meant to highlight some rythmical patterns in the ›behaviour‹ of drones across the city, on a macroscopic as well as on a microscopic level.
Date: 2006; Time: -; Location: Berlin; Length: 1’38
At the end you can hear the sound of a German ambulance siren replayed very slowly (at the very end you will hear a short bit in normal pitch).
