Rebel Notion No. 9 – 0026 – Série Pandémique – Socially Distant Winter Park Date

This winter we only had only about two weeks or so of really cold weather and snow. Enough to use the hill for sledding and build a skating rink in the park. The February day I chose to make this soundscape, was brittle, but sunny. The sky was punctuated by dazzingly white clouds in one of the bluest of blue skies of the season. Parents and their children just couldn’t or wouldn’t keep away. Many were unmasked which concerned me, but, hey, I’m trying not to judge.

Here’s what I heard:

Rebel Notion No. 9 – 0024 – Série Pandémique – A Corona Christmas Eve

It snowed and the neighbours gave out candy canes.   No parties this year, but as an event shared in many places worldwide, we gathered on our front porches to ring bells, make noise, and wish each other a Merry Christmas at 6:00pm.

Rebel Notion No. 9 – 0023 – Série Pandémique – A Pandemic Remembrance Day

November 11, 2020 11:00am. Toronto, Canada. Taps performed by a student from a local school. Fighter jets flying above the city. Two minutes of silence. And a barking squirrel.
