198 – Seoul Metro ‘Fanfare’
New ‘fanfare’ announcement that is currently being used on all Seoul Metro subway lines (Lines 1,2,3,4). No offense to whoever put these together, but I have to admit that the first time I heard this MIDI trumpet counterpoint, I laughed. In fact, even a month later, I still laugh. Personally, I preferred the old ones, as they got the job done a little more efficiently, and with a little less cheese. (198 – Seoul Metro ‘Fanfare’)
Recorded 7/20/11, 8:24AM (local time)
*P.S. This recording was made at 낙성대역 (Nakseongdae Station) toward 사당역 (Sadang Station). As the announcement suggests, it is the ‘inner-circle line’ of Line 2. I’m still having computer issues, so the picture above is recycled from an earlier post. But it’s still the right place.
