The sound of a small car driving by on W. Markham Avenue bordering Duke University around 2:00pm. I stood still and held my recorder, an iPhone 6, at my waist while standing on the sidewalk next to the street as the car drove past me.
The inside water sounded similar to someone gargling moutwash. Of the water recordings analyzed, it is one of the most loud and powerful underwater sounds. Again, as might be expected, no human factors can be distinguished.
Sound recording of a Georgia-Pacific Cormatic automatic paper towel dispenser (the standard model in bathrooms throughout the East Campus dormitories of Duke University). Recorded in a bathroom of Southgate Residence Hall on a Samsung Galaxy S5.
Since the rocks were quite close to the ATC top, the waterfall is the most distinguishable water feature in the recording. Music can also be heard. The water by the rocks themselves is much less distingushable.
The large garden fountain sounded incredibly similar to the small waterfall fountain at Duke Gardens, but with more human conversation and less lawnmower. The trickling heard is moderate and sounds similar to a light rainshower.
The water under the stream also sounded powerful, and the jumps of the recorder in and out of the stream made for an interesting slurping sound.
Biddle's fountain was the only one on this page where distinct human influenced noise can be heard. Indistinguishable talking can be heard in the background. Also, the fountain sounds similar to some of the other insider water recordings on the page, but not the outside recordings on this page.
The inside water recording is incredibly quiet, sounding like nothing more an a tiny trickle of water. Again, the small layer of water is enough to filter out the human voices, though.
The small trickle of a stream can be heard and a noise that sounds similar to a whisper or wind. There is also a rumbling noise, perhaps from the bubbling of the waterfall. The knocking, it can be noted, is a result of the incredible shallowness of the water.
