The London Sound Survey - Thames [Persistence Of Sound 003 Promo]

Put on the circuit on May 20th, 2k19 via Persistence Of Sound as the labels cat.no. 003 is the latest album by Ian Rawes' The London Sound Survey-project - a collection of Field Recordings that has begun back in 2008 and, at this point in time, holds an archive of over 2000 sound recordings from the London area, both contemporary and historical. With this album Rawes focuses on recordings made between 2010 and 2018 alongside the river Thames, highlighting captivating mechanical / industrial noises generated by the Tower Bridge as well as an unexpected abundance of wildlife, desolate, seemingly post-apocalyptic sonic scenarios, droning impressions from tidal wastelands and clanging metal ropes amongst other urban and suburban soundscapes. Interesting stuff for avid collectors of Field Recordings.
