Close mic recording of water running out in my tub. By fiddling with the partly-broken plug control while the water drains, a large variety of interesting noises were produced. Some water dripping and background noises are also audible at points, overall the recording is fairly clean.

    I am a biased long time friend and collaborator of Alienistcog.

    This recording has outdone Chris' infamous Fork Bowl Scrape for horrified/disgusted/creeped out reactions among several people I know.

    Although fork bowl scrape remains a favorite, on top of getting Alienistcog submitted for a competition for worst sound ever made (see https://www.npr.org/2016/10/01/496226369/trying-to-make-the-worst-sound-in-the-world for a spot on NPR about it which includes an interview biut with Chris (alieninstcog) and a tiny bit of the fork bowl scrape recording), Fork Bowl Scrap has been enjoyable for a few including myself both as a listening experience and (in my case) an exercise in schadenfreude for those who are less prepared for the listening experience, but even among the few peers that truly enjoy fork bowl scrape I have observed extreme cringing while listening to this masterpiece of sonic drainage.

    I think if you listen to the whole thing nice and loud, without interruption, the ending really brings it home.
