Two ambient recordings made by David Brown in the Summer of 1983. This first recording is of a person, identified as “George”, snoring, and can be quite disturbing at times to listen to. The second clip was made in the Burlington Northern freight train yard in Minneapolis and has some excellently evocative railroad sounds.
