When we visited Paley Park, the most prominent feature was the waterfall that provided an enjoyable visual and sonic texture. The sound of the flowing water overpowered the noise of the surrounding city. Water was a recurring theme in all of the sites that we visited today, from the waterfront in Queens to the gallon jugs bought at the corner store. My first clip is a recording from one of the tanks at the aquaponic farm in Brooklyn. Water is of course essential to any farm, but it was especially central to this one, and the way that they treated it was very unique. The cycle of the water from the fish tank to the plant pools and the infusion of nutrients from fish waste and bacteria cultures was very intriguing. The second clip is from the Gowanus Canal where water is pumped in to keep the canal flowing. There was a lot of foam generated at this point and the sound was very subtle but it provided an element of interest to an otherwise fairly uninteresting site (unless you are a landscape architect).
