I went to Canterbury earlier this year with me dear old Mum, which included a visit to the city’s marvellous cathedral which unfortunately was full of workmen and scaffolding at the time. On top of the irregular proto-industrial metal-on-metal clanging, we’d apparently also chosen to visit during the time when the organ was being tuned up.
Here’s a download link, apologies for not sticking it up on YouTube.
Most people would fall somewhere on the underwhelmed-aghast scale, but I was proper chuffed to hear some serious noise in that context. The above linked file is an mp3 of part of our visit, sadly the ongoing Krupps-ian metal-banging didn’t come through too well whilst the pocket noises and chatter did, but I think the whole is an interesting listen as almost found music. In any regard it’s a much shorter and easier piece than Lou Reed‘s Metal Machine Music.
Endless Sunday, what’s that sound?
