Le Carré des Artistes, Lille Sud, FR
Listening to a redeveloping neighbourhood.
Two mikroUši Pro's out of my apartment windows on the 2nd floor of our apartment building. One mic faces a large square with a usually busy arabic supermarket to the left and a large cemetary to the right. Across from the square is a metal foundry and a vacant lot. The other mic is ovelooking small gardens and a small street with a block of flats across the street. Imagine a building with ears either side of it.
For the last year I have been documenting the birds coming to my small garden behind my apartment and in the large square out front in Lille Sud. There are dunnocks, great tits, blue tits, chaffinches, robins, and occasionally blackbirds, magpies and starlings...
... Keep an ear out for the rooster in the cemetery.
