Sounding the City


street, alley and arcade

Recorded during the strict lockdown around the Bourke Street Mall and adjoining lanes, arcades and streets. All the shops are shut. The arcades deserted with empty displays. A few food deliveries to kitchens, that's about it. The sound is hollow and dominated the mechanical sounds of trams and pedestrian signals. While there are very few humans, there are more confident sparrows who find plenty to do. Are  the sparrows missing us?
