[Visually Sound Sunday: Pre-Music Consciousnesses -Going to Cargill ‘S’ 2]

Stumbled on this while doing some research. A couple minutes into the video you’ll see Steve Baczkowski blasting his horn inside the Cargill grain silo found just south of Buffalo. Even over YouTube, the sound is unbelievable. The natural reverb here gives the saxaphone an incredibly haunted and eerie sound that will give you chills. Seriously.

From tuffrod’s youtube channel: Steve [Baczkowski] was telling me that there was abandoned grain elevator where he used to play when he was kid and it had gigantic silo. It must be interesting to make sounds inside of it. but we couldn’t make it for a while. Then one day time has come. should we go to the grain elevator? why not! Riding bicycles carrying big instruments and video cam. 

The refrain of the pastoral phrase by Steve is enhanced by this silo which can be called the remains of the 20th century and reaches the extremity. 

So we were totally beaten by this natural reverberation.

this is series of video that is trying to imagine pre-music field.
