Buskers in Paris, Ile de la Cite edition - Thursday, Sept. 22nd

Happy Wednesday, all! I hope your week has been great so far. It’s still nice and sunny in Berlin, so I’m taking advantage of the weather and exploring as much as I can. 

I have another fun recording of a busker, taken during my vacation last week. I found these guys playing on a corner right behind the Notre Dame cathedral (on my way to get the most delicious Berthillon ice cream…more about that on Friday). I don’t know what it is about Sousaphones, but they get me every time. I love them and have always wanted to play one. If only my high school had a marching band…

Anyways, enjoy this quick little clip - it’s quite pleasant! This dixieland-ish trio was a great addition to the soundscape of our walk around Ile de la Cite. Oh, Paris. 

Have a great day & keep your submissions coming - I love hearing them! I’ll start posting new submissions soon, once Paris Busker Week has come to a close.

Buskers in Paris, St. Germain edition - Sunday, September 18th

Hello everyone! I’m back after a brief hiatus and a big move across the pond. I’m now settled nicely in Berlin, after a wonderful 4 days in Paris with my mum. Very, very happy to be here - the weather has been so great so far. A lovely welcome to my new city. 

The trip to Paris was obviously awesome, it’s such a pretty city. And very lively, too! And romantic…oh, I could go on and on with the adjectives. Anyways, I ate a lot and walked A LOT and recorded a bunch of fun sounds that I’d like to feature sporadically over the next week or so. After going through my archive of recordings, I noticed I have a lot of buskers (and there were lots of them). So, I think I’ll declare this week Buskers in Paris week on Sounds of My City. Cool? Cool. 

Today’s recording was taken in St. Germain, just next to the church bearing the same name. They were so fun, I just had to record them. The good stuff starts about 30 seconds in. Enjoy! And if you have any fun busker recordings, or come across any great ones this week - remember to share them with me

Remember: keep submitting your city sounds to the blog and the SoundCloud group! This blog will probably undergo a bit of a design edit in the next couple of weeks, but the main focus continues: let’s map the sounds of our great cities! Any city recordings you make during the day, on your adventures, during your commutes or outside your window - send them my way and I’ll feature them here! 

Happy Monday, everyone!
