The City Rings


An earful of IDES ( Paris)

We had a great afternoon on Friday. The class separated into two groups, oneĀ  remained mostly outdoors, whilst the others went inside. We went over how to use the recorder again before reflectiong on what sounds are particular to everyday life at IDES, and perhaps hard to recognise if you don’t know them, such as the ‘sonic footballs’ or the Perkins Brailler. You can hear the recordings below. At the end we all met inside for a nice cup of tea and recorded the kettle boiling. Some recordings didn’t work so we revised how to used the recorder again, that is part of the experience. Tomorrow, if all goes well and school is not cancelled because of the snow, we shall meet again, listen to the recordings made at home over the weekend, and finish our postcards. Phew…
