There’s a joke that there are only two seasons in the Midwest – winter and road construction. So it was only fitting that the city of Minneapolis started tearing up the street outside the Undertone studios last summer. We decided to make the best of a bad situation and record the construction site cacophony. This library has the clatter of flatbed trucks, chugging diesel engines, creaking earth movers, shovels digging through rubble, drilling, hammering, and of course plenty of vehicles beeping as they back up.
While there is a lot of great detail here with some very specific movements documented and we’ve used specific things to great effect, this is really more of an ambient library.
