Allan and Alex City and Train Sounds

The sounds you hear on this track are those taken from the tongue of New York City. The voices of its people, buildings, and train stations were edited together to create a story of a train rider encountering various personalities and situations throughout his commute. None of the events in the track actually happened the way they seem. Many different situations were combined to tell the story.

Julia Bender and Amanda Chiles Interview

For this assignment we interviewed people with the question, “What is the most important issue, either in New York City or the world, that should be dealt with?”. This question was asked to random people on the streets near or in Washington Square Park. The answers ranged from funny to serious. Although some were un-cooperative, many were excited to share their opinions. The people answering the question were all unique, wether it be a small child playing or an older bearded man. Completing this assignment was a learning experience on how to use sound in video, and learning about the people of New York.
