A 45-minute soundwalk from the waning moments of Sunday's Super Bowl

Book of SFX is a weekly performance of field recordings and sound experiments gathered during the previous week. Most, but not all, of our material is culled from common events occurring in the Boston area, so we like to think of these sounds as "natural", or what you might hear in your everyday life. We bring the
raw sounds into the studio and manipulate them live on-air for approximately an hour. We typically have a different theme every week.

In this week's volume in the ongoing Book of SFX series:

A 45-minute soundwalk from the waning moments of Sunday's Super Bowl to its glorious aftermath. The walk starts with five minutes left in the game right outside of the Haymarket subway and onto the street, and then moves to Bar 1, back outdoors (with a denial of entry into Bar 2), back into Bar 1 for the final ticks of the clock, back out into the street, and down in the subway. We won't play the walk in its entirety, but will take sound-rich snippets from each singular minute of the walk and play/manipulate those snippets in (approximate) chronological order to create a new hour-long product.
Tonight on WZBC, 90.3 FM in Boston and online.
