Video: The sounds of the subway

by Benjamin Kabak

This one comes to from Tim Sessler (by way of Gothamist). Sessler is a DC-based freelance video editor, and he explains his video, “Shot within a couple hours on a sunny Saturday afternoon, ‘Bending Sounds’ is a test/experiment to capture the inspirational sounds and visuals of the NYC subway.” It’s a little bit haunting, a little bit creepy and a little bit romantic. Give it a watch with some headphones on for the full aural experience.

I’ll be making a video called “Urinetown: The Smell of The NYC Subway” in SmelloVision. Already getting that nice little whiff of piss now that the temp is above 70 degrees. Yum, yum, another long, hot NYC summer.
