Sounds - a collage
I am posting here a collage of sounds that I recorded when I heard something interesting and had time to think about recording.
Here is a list of the sounds, in the sequence that you hear when the collage plays:
1 - Bells from a neighboring church that we hear every day many times. We can open our apartment window and hear them coming down an inner courtyard of our building.
2 - Sounds of a protest that we heard. The local teachers were protesting right in front of our apartment, because the offices of the school system are across the street from us. The reasons for the protest seem to be about respect and high-handed behavior by the administration.
3 - Some Gregorian chant that we hear in a church early in our stay in Bologna (we think). Both of us recorded it (I think). We don't remember where!
4 - Bells at the ancient church of San Stephano, Bologna. I only caught the end of this. The bells were very loud and a bit showy, I thought.
5 - A bird on a rooftop that we heard on a street one night. We didn't see it, so we don't know what it was.
6 - This mercifully short sound is something that I heard in the bathroom of the museum of the history of the canals of Bologna.
7 - Bells of the Neonato Baptistry in Ravenna.
8 - Busy birds in a yard next to Sant Apollinare in Classe.

Thank you for these soundscapes. It makes the city almost tactile. And those old bells- they can echo all through me.
