Rome – pedestrian subway exit

Recordings made in the square in front of the subway station of Cipro. You can hear the footsteps of people entering and leaving, the sound of the trains arriving and departing, the noise generated by coins inserted in automatic ticket machines and the background traffic from the above road. Its particular acoustic is given by the architectural traits of the place, a large basement environment, open-air, covered on three sides by shiny plates and the fourth consisting of stone steps leading to the street level.
Recorded with a Zoom H4n.
