Turkey: Day Twenty
At any one time there are half a dozen ferries docked in Kadiköy, waiting to go out again. Each of the boats has a number of car and truck tyres attached to the front that act as a kind of bumper, and the dock has the same attached to it. So when another ferry goes past these bumpers rub against one another and produce a great rubbery friction sound. I tried to capture this in my recording today, and there are sounds of people, sloshing water and chains as well from the boats. Plus loops of finger cymbals from yesterday, pitched down.
