Turkey: Day Eleven




I visited İstanbul Modern today, and had a really nice time enjoying Turkey's modern art offerings. One particular work that caught my ear, so to speak, was Monica Bonvicini's Stairway to Hell (2003), which places long heavy chains around the staircase that links the two floors of the gallery. The chains and the metal stairs made some great sounds as people traversed up and down, so I recorded! There's a no photo policy in the gallery however, so here's a picture of me getting blown about on the ferry between Kadiköy and Kabataş.

I added a little delay and panning to the chains and gallery sounds, but there was a fair amount of natural delay already in the recording. Plus there's also the simit salesman from yesterday.
