[oddmusic] SB :: CityNumberScapes


Louis Lamp & myself recently recorded three one hour citynumberscapes, which will be aired by ResonanceFM's Clear Spot, on July 2, 3 and 4, between 8 and 9 pm (London Time / it'll be one hour earlier, between 7 and 8 pm / 19-20h, for listeners in the Western parts of the European continent ...)

Citynumberscapes are field/quotidian recordings of urban space, peppered with recited numbers found within the landscape. We did them as factual and 'artlessly' as possible, without montage or post-production: just pressed record, walked, looked for numbers & spoke ...

Louis walked around London, speaking out loud the UK capital's numbers in English.
I did the same in Amsterdam, in Dutch, and in Paris, in French.

To make things even more exciting for all of you number fetishists, I will subtitle the Amsterdam (Dutch) and Parisian (French) citynumberscape broadcasts live on Twitter, at http://twitter.com/soundblog (or look up the hashtag: #cityns).

happy hearing!
