Part of my job involves taking photographs of industrial processes to illustrate a series of manuals with production instructions and guidelines that the company gives to the machine operators. Parallel to taking the photographs. I capture the sounds from those processes most of them involving steam and pneumatic powered machines whose sonorities I found quite interesting for their percussive nature and their high pitched textures respectively.
These recordings reveal an interesting obvious and irrelevant phenomena that captures my interest: parallel to making a product, the operator is performing a sound score using the machines as instruments.
The operator is unadvisedly reading and performing a score unadvisedly written and encoded in the instructions and guidelines.
While aware of "a performance" I advisedly record it.
(Some recordings were later treated. Found sounds collected during that period were also used).
