Recording of a Speed Queen Industrial Washer in the Blackwell Residence Hall laundry room running a hot water cycle with four quarters inside. A stereo pair of contact mics by JrL were attached to the soap drawer and base of the machine, while a Zoom H4n Handy Recorder with unidirectional stereo mics was held about three inches in front of the porthole (four total audio tracks).
The very end of a wash cycle in a washing machine in the Alexander Avenue laundry room on Duke University's Central Campus. As the wash cycle ended, the heater in the room turned on. Only one washing machine was on. This recording was taken around 11:00 pm. Recorded with a Zoom H4N.
