Sense of Sound: Precipitate

This sound track is a fusion of the sounds that represent India bulls. It starts off with a knocking sound on the newly made wooden flooring progressing to the sound each ones feet makes on the shining, slippery marble flooring. There is a constant increase in the pace of the beats, which mechanically creates a sense of rhythm. The soundtracks are merged into one another and at the same time creating a relapse. The mid section creates a kind of break with the calming orchestral music and once again shifts into the loud gushing of the water and sweeping sound. It gives its listeners a very chaotic impression. The sudden beep sounds are symbolic of every entrance in the building and tends to create an unbroken beat, which constantly goes back and forth. What is unique is the abrupt ending that gives a feel of the swiftness.

A sense of a mechanical and organised way of working. There is a subtlety in the way the background noise almost lingers throughout the track which constantly gives a sense of a public space almost like a station. There is intentional knocking and creation of sound to give a sense of the material that composes the space. This awkward mechanical mood is abruptly broken by the sound of the opera which is also constant but subtle in the premise. This fluidity is music is followed by the sound of the fluidity in water. The track then flows into the noisiness and crowded canteen with more murmur than people. There is a sense of constant check and security in this building which is represented through the endless beeping of scanning machines. This almost repetitive and diverse range of sounds that transfers itself from one genre to another is a part of my automatic, everyday life.

This song comprises of many distinct sound segments that are fused together to form an unusual but catchy piece. The progression of each segment, although abrupt, has a certain beat to it. The intensity and pitch of the sound rises through the song and ends with a sudden honk. The song conveys a journey where you come across sounds of various activities linked together. The beeping towards causes a certain anxiety which rises up till the climax honk which makes the song memorable. The sound also reminds me of beat boxing as each individual segment in the sound has a certain rigid structure to it.
