Newspaper Printing Facility Ambiance

paperRecently I escorted a group of students on a tour of the Star Tribune’s printing facilities. I couldn’t stay for the whole tour, but managed to record a little bit of sound while I was there.

There were lots of chatty students and a wordy tour guide, but I managed to sneak away and record a few examples of conveyor belts, fork lifts, robotic paper transporters, and general machine noise.

Here’s an except of some ambiance I captured in the paper warehouse area where these giant reams of news print were brought in by railway cars.
