A DAMP AND CHILLY afternoon in March.

The 3D recording was made at the City Centre Mall bus shelter, facing east — along 101 Street — looking across into the Square. There’s a persistent hiss and drone of a mechanical device; it’s on your right, adding a bit of edge to the space. And, yes, that swooshing sound is ‘slush’ from the melting snow kicked up by passing traffic.

On the ground, I spot a faded bit of broken plastic — an unexpected rainbow — some welcome colour to the otherwise drab interior of the shelter; the carillon bounces inside and echoes in an attractive way — a ‘sweet spot’ for the HARMONY OF THE SQUARE.

What does this sound like to your ears?  Use headphones for best result.
