Ghost tram

Riga tram reimagined by Wendy McCredie. 

The original recording felt quite prosaic and ordinary, but I was playing around with reverbs and another of my recordings from Riga to create different effects, and thought I'd try it on the Tram recording and thought it sounded like a ghost train. There's a lot of history in Riga, the obvious older history, and the more recent history lurking just below the surface. It felt a little like the tram had just rumbled out of the past and if I dared get on it, it might take me off to another time entirely.
