This is a sample of the sounds overheard at the Chronicle from the Bhangra practice next door. The Chronicle's office is located on the third floor of the Flowers building adjacent to the West Campus Chapel. The performance room, from which the sounds are heard, is adjacent to the Chronicle's photo room (the two rooms are separated by a door). At first, the music is clearly audible. Within the first few seconds, however, a staffer at the Chronicle shuts the door. This action is identifiable by the door's audible creak as it shuts. Another staffer then plays a different tune closer to the source of recording.
A thirty second recording of piano playing on a Monday afternoon in the Brown Residence common room on East Campus, at Duke University. A track with a main focus on a casual amateur piano improvisation, running parallel to the general noise of a busy, shared, closed college environment. Recorded on an iPhone 5s, which was placed on the right side of the piano player throughout the duration of the recording.
