Scenic Hudson's West Point Foundry Preserve, Cold Spring, New York
Binaural recordings, a first in known mobile apps, were recorded in the field in order to capture the unique spatial qualities of the actual environment. Our team, including narrators and experts, braved rain, heat, bugs, and numerous retakes in the effort to communicate the acoustic history of the site as well as its importance to American history. We recorded sounds such as the cannon shot right next to the gun testing platform and we went to metal shops and foundries to capture the tremendous sounds made by trip hammers and blacksmithing machinery.
