Sounds of the City

leave a comment »

“It was on a late Monday night and the streets of Paris were very quiet… the sounds from that night in the cab, including the taxi headlights blinking, an ambulance, 2 really great French songs which I heard for the first time” and a conversation between the taxi driver and her friend.

It’s interesting how without visuals, relying purely on a mixture of sounds, I was able to make out a vague but richly coloured scene of the foreign city that is perhaps more intimate than looking at images. The power of sound.
