The Irish Pile Driver In Isolation

Piledriver sound reimagined by Elizabeth Joan Kelly.

"I attempted to situate myself in the brain of an Irish pile driver operator as they momentarily transcend into a few moments of tranquility. I only used the original field recording in this piece--no extra sounds. The dangers of noise pollution are ongoing and severe, particularly for construction workers. With this work I hope to model how urban "noise" can be made more palatable."
