Ambient New York – The Staten Island Ferry

Published

Staten Island Ferry

 

Today’s episode is not an interview. Today’s is a preview. It’s preview to a series that I’m working on called Sounds of the City. I literally walk around the city with a documentary microphone capturing the pulse, the heartbeat, the music, the voices, the sounds and sirens of a particular area in New York.

In this episode we’ll be listening to the Staten Island Ferry. I’ve been taking the ferry as far back as I can remember. I can remember as a kid, I always wanted to order something from the snack bar on the boat. My mom was always like “Nah, save your money…” I’m 40 years old and I still haven’t done it! I promise you next time of I’m on the ferry I’m getting a soft pretzel or a beer or both.

It’s one thing to commute on the ferry and it’s a whole other experience if you just stop and listen. I walked all around the boat with the microphone for an enhanced experience.

What’s up good people. Today’s episode is a little different from normal conversation and interviews I conduct from Tuesday to Tuesday.

But for the last week or I’ve been in Lisbon and Porto Portugal on vacation. So instead of skipping a week or repeating an old episode I decided to share with you an up coming series I’ve been working on as an addition the New York Said – Tuesday talks.

Starting this summer we’ll be adding Ambient New York to the show. For 52 Sundays you’ll be able to listen to various parts of the city in the raw. So far I’ve recorded Times Square, Dumbo, the Staten Island Ferry and the High Line. Read the Show Notes

Give the Drummer Some

Published

Today’s guest on the show is Drummer, Showtime Hood. As I was transferring to the F train at West 4th I heard the familiar sound of Showtime’s drums. I stopped, listened and invited him to the show. He was happy to play a set but when I asked for an interview, Showtime thought it would be best to let his music do the talking.

Please enjoy.

Hopped off the train and caught Receta Secreta just jamming away at the Super Mario Bros theme. I asked them to play it again so I could film it and they did. So kind. I appreciate these guys.
