The NYPL Has Released An Album Of NYC Sounds #MusicMonday #NYC
Things around New York City have been changing rapidly. If you are feeling nostalgic for the city sounds of crowded spaces check out this playlist Missing Sounds Of New York album on Spotify from the New York Public Library.
According to a press release, the new immersive album aims “to bring all New Yorkers together and foster community during an unprecedented time of social separation during COVID-19. The experience is a collection of audio landscapes that evoke the sounds of New York City as we know it, and transports listeners to the daily urban orchestra they look forward to hearing again soon.” They also note that “the album finds comfort in the familiar… Each track uses a combination of sounds to create familiar, ambient canvases on which mini stories are placed: a glass breaking in a bar, a dance performance on the subway, and so on.”
