The sound of a live police scanner mixed with ominous music.

Canal LachineThis somewhat interactive site, called YouAreListening, features various cities from across North America and mixes the feed from a live police scanner with dark and ominous ambient music. Some cities contain video too. It truly is a beautiful concept and also a great way to find new artists in the ambient world, as the system is random and automated. Neat.

This week’s Frandoms are by Andrew Harris, film composer, sound designer, and creative director of Vapor Music in Vancouver.
