This recording took place at the Neuman Lighted Water Dome on South Street and Barstow in downtown Waukesha. The mics were attached at a vent on the dome that allowed me to hear what was going on inside.
My starting point for my drift walk was right here at Bryant Bridge. The first recording I made was of the Fox River that runs directly underneath the bridge. I hung the microphones over the edge and recorded.
In this recording, I was walking towards the First Baptist Church on the corner of Grand Ave and Wisconsin Ave. I wasn't looking to record anything in particular, I just decided to walk with the recorder on.
For this recording, I was walking along Barstow Street when I saw a train passing by up ahead. I turned my recorder on and walked towards the tracks. I had to cut the recording a little short because my walking became much too obvious.
My drift strategy was that I drew a square on a map of downtown Waukesha and I walked everywhere inside that square. It was raining the day I went on the walk to that made it a little more interesting.
