BIG SOUNDS ARE FREE…
Public Release of the Big Sounds of the Drags 2001
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 28, 2008, Los Angeles, CA — In the spirit of what is known as “Creative Commons,” the Nitronic Research founders have released the entire body of NR’s ambient sound f/x recording, “The Big Sounds of the Drags 2001″ for free public consumption.
More than than just a fetishistic exercise in audio drag porn, the “Big Sounds” is made up of 37 distinct recordings, ranging from the intimate and ambient sounds of Top Fuel dragsters, Funny Cars, Fuel Altereds, Jet Cars, Wheelstanders and doorslammers, interspersed with interviews from drag racing luminaries such as “Big Daddy” Don Garlits, “Wild Bill” Alexander, Roland Leong, Dean Skuza, Ron Capps, “Techno Tim” Gibson and others, all of which is sporadically underscored by surf music. It was engineered, recorded, mixed and mastered by Ikky Shivers and Cole Coonce.
All tracks (and accompanying liner notes) are available here: https://thebigsoundsofthedrags2001.wordpress.com
Feel free to load up your iTunes library, create “drag strip ringtones” and/or burn discs to your heart’s content. — Cole Coonce
