Sounds of Niagara Falls!
You may remember a post here a couple of years ago on the topic of Shrunken Heads, wherein Ripley's Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario was discussed?
Well, I visited the Honeymoon Capital again this past weekend, and while I was there, I did a bit of audio socio-history or ethno-something-or-other. That is to say, I recorded some of the 'barker loops' outside tacky Clifton Hill tourist traps like the Rock Legends Wax Museum or the nearby House of Frankenstein. Also inside Casino Niagara, which definitely has its own strange audio ambiance.
These are by no means whatsoever great recordings, let me make that clear at the outset. But they are pretty funny stuff at times and they certainly provide some atmosphere along with all the wind noise. Hope you enjoy!
Rock Legends Wax Museum
House of Frankenstein
Casino Niagara (kind of soothing)
