Soundclip of me entering a subway station and waiting a few minutes for a train to arrive. You will notice the change of environment, as I passed the revolving doors from outside to inside the station. Inside, you will hear the "hum" of mercury-vapor lamps, a man hanging up the public phone talking to himself and cursing, rustling of plastic bags, a recorded intercom message (in French) informing users about closed subway stations and available shuttle service, people paying fares (with change), passing the turnstyles (two-tone chime)... then taking their transfer ticket (bang-bang sound), wind whistling through the revolving doors (caused by a negative pressure inside the station, as the trains arrive in opposite directions). Equipment used : Sony Minidisc (MZ NHF-800), binaural mics (http://www.giant-squid-audio-lab.com/gs/gs-podcast_stereo.html) + preamp (www.visivoxtechnologies.com). Sounds best when the file is downloaded, decompressed to WAV and listened with headphones.
