Tracks and Trees


This installment of the series is a short meditation on the sound of trains and trees. Samples of late night freight moving through the city give way to an out of the way dead end street with a small stand of poplars and cottonwood trees. The sounds of the mechanisms of commerce and industry are never far from the tiny lots that remind us what was on the shores of Lake Michigan long before the trains arrived.
