As many of you know i commute daily back and forth through the city, and as a result it hear many conversations and live performances in the train as well as in Penn station. the first recording I found was when I was waiting for my train. Now not sire if you all know this, but Penn is a large train station which could take you practically anywhere, and in my case I take the LIRR, Long Island rail road. the LIRR has a large screen with all trains listed with their respected times, and you have to constantly be staring at it because it will randomly tell you which track your specific train will appear on; i.e. the train to ronkonkama for 6:53 will be in track on. It leads to a large mass of people staring mindlessly at the sign waiting for the track o appear, and this large population is a great area to preform live. So this band set up right beneath the sign and began playing and i was lucky enough to capture it before my train arrived.
The second file was from the streets of Brooklyn when we were walking to the Moore Street Market Farm. We passed by a lot of places and small businesses, some were playing music. in the little clip I took you hear what the average Brooklyn resident would, which i found interesting to listen to. When you live in an area for a time, noises and obscure sounds become while noise naturally, so when i recorded this i thought it was interesting hearing all the sounds on the streets, yet at home it's piratically identical besides thr music, yet I never take notice anymore.
