Rome 2014


I spend almost a week in the beautiful city of Rome. A great place to discover new sounds.

Churches and basilisks are one of my favourites because of their acoustic nature. It’s hard however to get the reverberation of the rooms well recorded because a visitor is often asked to be quiet. Luckily there are, accidently, janitors to mop the floor with a cleaning machine, big speakers where voice-overs announce to be quiet or security-guards that loudly ‘shhh’ to the tourists, in order to make them whisper more quietly.
