On the afternoon of 15 September, 2012, I went on a field trip to get some field recordings for this week's Disquiet Junto. First I went to KaDeWe (famous department store in former West Berlin) but it was too crowded and devoid of interesting sounds to be of any use. Next up was Karstadt in Hermannplatz, a department store chain which is common in Germany, but again, the recordings weren't interesting.
So across the street I went to Bauhaus, which is a massive two storey building supply store in a similar vein to Home Depot - and not the famous design and architecture school by the same name! =)
In the recording you can hear the sound of the wood cutting service, people playing with drills and someone in English talking about a particular brand of drill. Later in the recording, you hear the sound of an idling machine used by staff to lift themselves and products to reach high shelves.
This Disquiet Junto project was done in association with the exhibit As Real As It Gets, organized by Rob Walker at the gallery Apex Art in Manhattan (November 15 - December 22, 2012):
