Well we now know that we will be shortly moving back to Melbourne. We both have new jobs to start which are going to be very interesting, but it does mean our time up here is very limited, so I want to start getting as much material as possible up here before we leave. With that in mind I thought I would go out and do some more local area stuff. Just grabbing anything of interest in the immediate area. I started by walking down to the local service station. I recorded some people filling up their cars with petrol and then went around to the garage area and recorded a little bit of the sounds there. I got a few sounds from the pneumatic wrench they use to get wheels on and off with as well as the hydraulic hoists operating.
Then I walked down through the junction area I stopped by the cinema and recorded a pinball machine and a couple of kids playing air hockey. The pinball was ok, but it was a modern machine. I really want to make sure I can get to record a nice old pinball machine from the 60’s or 70’s. They have far more character to their sounds. I also recorded the automatic sliding doors while I was there. This was a great location to get these as during the day it was really quiet where most supermarkets or shopping centres tend to be much noisier.
