Last summer I had the Kreepy Krauly manual out to assemble this far out pool cleaning contraption. It uses sucking pressure from the pool pump to self guide itself  around a dirty pool. Only Leaving behind a trail of clean. The clicking ticking of the of the Kreepy Krauly is somewhat hypnotic so I had […]

Not sure how this could possibly appeal to anyone! However this is the sound we wake up to each morning. Listen to my coffee maker as it runs its cycle.

Im hoping this page finds an audience of others passionate about capturing sound and manipulating it, for whatever the platform or purpose.
