February 2022: This was good in 2009 and it is gooder today.
Back in 2009, a friend was trying to run a recording studio in Hudson, WI. Hudson is one of the many cities in our area that poorly tries to balance the public peace and quiet with the demand from bars and restaurants to cater to the summer biker crowd. Scott tried to raise some awareness of how mentally ill the whole biker bullshit is with this essay, “Loud Pipes Risk Lives.” While it has the stink of science, knowledge, and reality that so many Americans seem to have abandoned, if you can hold your nose and get past that bias, it’s a pretty good analysis of psychoacoustics and sound from someone who has studied those fields extensively.
PS: Yeah, I know I’ve linked this article before, but good things often require repeating.
