The Sound of Speed

Bob Thompson’s The Sound of Speed (check out the audio samples!)

Via Boing Boing: “an album entirely based on the noises of modern transportation.”

“This “concept” LP rhapsodizes the technology of human transport, from Vespa scooters to Le Mans racers, from tricycles to rocket ships. Each of the dozen vehicular vignettes is book-ended by authentic sound effects, with vivid stereo motion. The music was composed and arranged by Thompson, and the album was recorded in Italy by the Orchestra dei Concerti de Roma, conducted by Paul Baron.”
