So what do you do when the fire alarm goes off at work and everyone has to evacuate the building? Record the alarm of course! What was otherwise a usual day in the studio became a brief opportunity to grab a new sound as we had the fire alarm activate in the building forcing a full evacuation. I took the opportunity to record the alarm as we made our way out. This also reminded me that being in a new work environment meant I had a whole new range of sounds I will need to get around to recording sometime soon.
