Got to the subway between 8:45 and 9:00 pm.
My report is based on what I actually heard. With this exercise, I tried to capture as much sound as possible, instead of trying to analyze more of what the people is actually taking about.
A man singing – word- I just don’t understand. People talking – Train whisking by, screeching wheels, door opening – Stand clear – Next Stop is: Bergen street. Doors shot, screeching, siren- buzzer, snack bags rattling, Train approaching, Train slowing down, screeches- another train approaching -sounds.- A little further, train leaving station. People talking -Feet Walking – shoes dragging of the ground. Train approaches screeches of the brakes – announcements. Stand clear – door closes – brakes screeches- Man talking with heavy voice – Curse words.. or profanity uses of words [*********]. Bottle cap open- profanity – music playing – people talking – coughing – radio playing music from a boom box – it sounds like Spanish music playing loudly from a cell phone – People laughing – man sniffing – throat clearing.
