Electric cars, field recordings.

I love this quote from Matmos’ “The Civil War: A User’s Guide” (referring to their album of that name that I’m currently listening to over and over), linked to in my last post; this is under track 7, Pelt and Holler, about field recordings of grass sounds:

We recorded said landscape on the side of Bernal Heights Hill near our home in San Francisco. It was sadly quite difficult to ever record any quiet sounds at all, as noise pollution from the city reigns supreme and covers everything in a continual blur of automotive modernity. More electric cars=a quieter city, better field recordings.”
