Listening to, recording & making music with the sounds around you.

#RIO: Botafogo Bay

Walking along the path between Botafogo Bay and Parque do Flamengo, I'm struck by one of the most famous sights in Rio - Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf).

The idyllic scenery is somewhat incongruent with the soundscape - a busy six-lane traffic highway running along the other side of the path.

These recordings take in this juxtaposition, and then try to focus on the nearby sounds that to me, are maybe better suited to the view - rustling grasses and lapping water. The constant flow of passing traffic could almost be the swell of the sea...
