Tonight, TechTV's Audiofile program featured the Silophone, an abandoned silo in Montréal that has been turned into a gigantic reverb chamber. You can listen to what is happening (requires RealAudio) and even play a sound into this thing from the web or even from a phone.


TechTV is also running Thunderbirds (at least soon) and Max Headroom. Now how cool is that ?

I see you deleted the echo of this entry :)

Have you heard Deep Listening, an album recorded in a huge empty 2-million-gallon water cistern? The actual sound sources are pretty minimal, it's the reverberation of the cistern itself that provides most of the music. Very beautiful ... epitonic has one of the tracks.

Is this thing on ?

Yes, LiveJournal seems to be having a bad hair weekend. Something is making the posts work, but then the proxy inside the LJ system says the operation failed even though it didn't.

I'll have to check out that Deep Listening track; also, a 1990 recording of Gavin Bryar's Sinking of the Titanic (as related in this nearly unreadable web page) was taken at an abandoned water tower.

As if I needed another excuse to make the drive to MTL this summer...
