Sounds of the London Underground

$60 $40

Anybody familiar with travelling on the London Underground will be aware of the distinct soundscapes beneath the streets of London; from the clatter of the ticket hall barriers to the eerie rumbles from the tunnels, waiting in anticipation for the next train to come rushing past before stopping with the squeal of the brakes.

Each type of train on the network has its own distinct characteristics such as the moaning of the electric traction motors or the peculiar sound of the 1996 Stock used on the Jubilee Line.

All of these sounds have been beautifully captured in 24-bit 48KHz quality- recorded both with XY stereo microphones and binaurally- creating a highly realistic experience for headphone users.

Note to users:
As many of you will know, like many urban transit systems, the London Underground is littered with pre-recorded public announcements.
These recordings have been extensively edited to the highest quality to ensure that these pre-recorded announcements have been removed where possible.

Infrastructure Recordings is a small enterprise founded by Chris Richmond, whose life-long interests in sound and music have developed into an up and coming brand of high-quality audio recordings.

Chris’ links with the public transport industry means he has a great deal of experience with buses, refining an ear for detail, which, combined with his own curiosity has enabled him to produce a number of high-quality sound libraries defining each vehicle’s unique sonic characteristics.

A railway enthusiast at heart, Chris is also passionate about railway recordings- particularly the sounds of fast-disappearing heritage vehicles, attempting to preserve those characteristic soundtracks we all take for granted, which will soon all be consigned to the history books.
