Katie's video slot world

From: Jenny Asarnow
Length: 03:08

I just like the machine Read the full description.

Default-piece-image-1 I recorded this piece at Lincoln Park, a video slot gambling casino and greyhound racetrack in Lincoln, Rhode Island. Most of the people I talked to came to play the slots several times a week. I was mesmerised by all of the sounds coming out of the machines around me, so thick and rich it was like swimming in them. Like an arcade, but for adults, and it costs more money.

Very nice use of sound; best aired on a stereo station. Could probably use as ambient audio to use as intro to a gambling piece -- needn't use the whole piece.
