Ian Thompson-London - Walthamstow Central
Ian Thompson-Corona Dawn - 04:15, March 26th 2020
Sixth-floor west-facing balcony adjacent to Walthamstow Central Station, overlooking London
North east London, UK. A usually busy location, ominously quieter during the corona virus lock-down.
Complex, rich soundscape with a balance of androphony, biophony and geophony (mainly wind). Acoustically enclosed east and west by 7 and 10-storey blocks of flats; gardens and open space to south; rail and bus station to north. Regular trains every 15 mins (including ominous announcements), crows, blackbirds, sparrows, gulls, sometimes a woodpecker, foxes, dogs, humans, buses, helicopters, sirens, delivery bikes, street sweepers, ... etc.
Binaural stereo, so listen with headphones if you can.
3Dio FSPII binaural mic + Rycote windjammers (homemade)
Wolfson audio card + RPi 1 streambox
