Rebecca Goldberg: Detroit sounds that matter
As Rebecca Goldberg drives by the surroundings of Packard Plant trying to find a gap where to trespass, she suddenly slows down the car just beside a group of public workers. Half of the street is fully closed while two lorries and a Volvo bulldozer hold to take the old pavement of the way. The beats come from the ground: thousands of impacts per minute from an industrial drilling machine cracks the concrete for minutes in a row. “This is techno”, she says, and takes her iPhone out to get it recorded.
