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 – 0022 – Série Pandémique – A Corona Halloween

One Angry Pumpkin

The parents on the street decided to have a short parade, less than 100 metres in fact, with all the children on Halloween.    So just before sunset, we walked to the end of the street, with a boombox filling in for the Pied Piper.   The party was topped off by a leaf throwing contest.  This treat was courtesy of hired gardeners who left a crunchy expanse of them on city property.   This audiographer was hit with more than one maple leafball.     As always, best listened to in a quiet space with headphones.

Rebel Notion No. 9 – 0021 – Série Pandémique – Not With a Bang But A Whimper

Here is my soundscape of a physically distanced fireworks display on Canada Day July 1 2020 10:30 PM.  By physically distanced, I mean, if you wanted to, and if you were still awake hang out on your own stoop, physically distanced.   Having walked to the park and further, chasing the sounds of an unpeopled celebration, Special K went inside the house while I sat on the stoop and continued to listen.   These are some of the things I heard. Best listened to in a quiet space with headphones.
