Hospital Ambiance Recorded at Aarhus County Hospital in Aarhus
Hzandbits Sound Effects recorded Hospital Ambiance in the rooms and corridors of the old Aarhus County Hospital in Aarhus, Denmark. A notable characteristic is the lack of acoustical treatment in corridors and hallways, giving a rather hard and reverberant sound, which is typical of Danish public building styles of the 1930s and ’40s.
Elevators and automatic doors are heavy and noisy; humming and clanking as patients and staff pass through them. Electric vehicles used to move patients and supplies around inside the complex are old and not exactly noiseless either.
In some of the recordings, faint, muffled or smeared voices can be heard. This is the sound of a place that is no more, as this old hospital is being turned into expensive apartments or something to that effect.
Hospital Ambiance is 59 minutes/1.80 Gb of ambiance recordings from an old hospital. 24 separate files – recorded in 24bit/96kHz A-B stereo.
