younger sounds


As a few of the shops who will be hosting a Vitrines Sonores cater for children, I have been recording some sounds that will connect with younger ears.  I recorded such a sound today as Lens was visited by the chart-topping Alpha Diallo – a French-Guinean rapper with a hit solo CD, as well as a member of the very successful Sexion d’Assaut collective.  Needless to say there were hundreds of young people, some waiting all day, ready for his arrival, clutching CDs and bits of paper for him to sign.  I joined the crowd and managed to record the excitement at the moment the artist arrived.  This sound is also significant as I think it will be my last recording for this project.  I now have about sixty in all, and am now currently editing and sequencing the sounds in preparation for installation next week.
