Sentinels In The City

Earlier last week, construction started and could be heard all around the west side of Montreal. Upon hearing it I took to the streets with my recorder to get some pile driver sounds for the library. The thumping was loud and as I got closer another sound began to surface, but not one you’d expect from a construction site.

A yelping-like scream projected itself from beneath the earth. I only recorded about a minute of the creature scream, but as you’ll notice there’s a second low frequency that really crunches through the ground. It’s as though the pile driver was only there to distract us from what was really going on.
