Nice is Nice

Beautiful Nice city! It got the right name!

The old town has nice little colored streets with smells ans shops.
Great soundwalk in here!


Of course, the sea is omnipresent!

This floor made me dizzy somehow:

Stealth Recording in Reykjavik!

Going through parks, the Kolaportið market, the Hallgrimskirkja tourist crowd,   and random streets…

after many nights of not sleeping well in hostels

I think only the cat has discovered my disguise!

Authentic Endless Street Markets in Otavalo

Otavalo Markets

I have strolled around this beautiful mountain town of Otavalo as it offers some remarkable markets on weekends.

I couldn’t go to Ecuador without recording these. I took my surround stealth setup and walked in and out the markets.

First the usual market all around the streets expose some incredible textile artisans. It is a one of the biggest in South America and the stands expands all over the village. It creates this huge rich color palette and reflects on sounds as many people swarm around.

Then, there is the ‘mercado de los animales’, the animal market which is surprising mess of people and animals. With randoms cows bawling, pig shrieking, people shouting… I was so exciting to witness this scenery and record truly authentic and interesting ambiences.
