I've been asked to create and perform, a concert for laptops/electronics and three real tractors. Its gonna be awesome, I have lots of ideas, but don't really know tractors and would like to know. Maybe some of you guys know your 'tors and can give me some tips...
-Assume they're really basic ones (I don't know more right now)
-They have to stand still (they can't drive around and squash little children)
-The engines can be (will be) running, they will be "live"
-There will be drivers / controllers
-There will be technicians etc
-We can probably mic up what we need, no sound is too quiet
Tell me all the sounds a tractor can and will make! Regular and crazy ideas much appreciated.
