paris soundscape, series 4, final: spring love…
Posted in paris, pia's photos, soundscapes June 11th, 2009 by piablog

There is always romance in the air in Paris, but in Spring, romance and love seems to envelope the whole city more than ever. I adore Paris in the Spring time – I moved to Paris in the Spring, I fell in love in the Spring, and it seems I keep coming back in the Spring. Perhaps I’m addicted to the romance…

So for this final soundscape for the series, its all about Spring love in Paris – a collection of photos taken while wandering the streets of the city in Spring, along with a soundscape captured while strolling at dusk with French Boy through St Germain the other Saturday night, stopping in at Taschen (which was still open at 10pm!), and then wandering around the corner, hand in hand, to find an old dude singing I can’t believe you’re in love with me, dressed in berret and suspenders. so. ro. man. tic.

The sound quality of this one is very poor unfortunately, but I rather like the 1920’s feel of it, and I hope you will still enjoy it. So, please take it away, monsieur

    such an inspiring series of soundscapes, pia! i agree with you completely – i find the 1920s quality quite charming. as for my love affair with paris – fall is my season, it’s when i moved there (and will move back).

    You have popped into a capsule, a transition of time, a moment of emotion where the senses burst open in bloom. Find a way to bottle it up for the rest of us. This will hold us at bay for just a short while, though we’ll make it last best we can.

    You’ve done well and good.
