Revealing the sounds of a historic quarry

“When the quarry was abandoned, much of the equipment and structures were left just as it was (as if the quarrymen had gone for lunch and never returned). The site has stayed the same, plus some rust, until now.”

Derek brought his trusty Zoom recorder on our hike through the defunct Chester-Hudson Quarry. We stocked up on rusty metallic samples that I can’t wait to try out. 

In the clips below, you will see us tapping away at the rusty old machine parts. Even better, you’ll hear the sounds they emit as if echoing back through time.
