Machine Symphony

Machine Symphony is a celebration of machines. All sounds are derived from recordings of steam engines and other assorted machinery. The sounds were processed to create drones and rhythmic ostinatos. These elements in turn are arranged similar to an “orchestra” of different instruments, resulting in a “symphony” of sounds.
