333 – Automatic Doors

This v.experimental piece is a recording taken yesterday of the automatic doors of a supermarket in Addlestone, Surrey. It’s a really amazing sound and I can’t think why they’ve chosen such noisy, if harmonic motors.

I’ve simply layered three versions of the recording, each warped a little in pitch, to thicken things, and slightly effected the overall mix with some eq and a little reverb.

I hear a sound that reminds me of childhood days playing in tower block lifts, with the sound of the wind whistling through the elevator shafts in which we travelled along with the clunks, clicks and the singing electrical motors.

Hope you like it?
