Civitavecchia – vibrations of a ferry boat

Recording made shortly after the departure of a ferry in Sardinia. The deep sound of the vibration of the engines, along with a series of rattles, acute and chirps, generate a very charming sound profile, and different based on the listening points, and in some areas in transit of the ship, the sound of mechanical activity is so strong that after a short time the intense sound pressure makes it unpleasant and difficult to stop for too long.

Recorded with a Zoom H4n.
