THE SOUND OF DIESEL is one thing. Add squealing brakes, bleeps and bloops and a passersby with an air-horn (in the middle of the afternoon!) and you have one of the more challenging spots to listen for the Friendship Tower bells.

Tell me what you think of this 3D soundscape: an experimental design to make waiting for Edmonton transit more pleasant.  Listen for the shimmer and reflections of sound — the screech and hiss of the bus becomes a little easier on the ear. Use headphones for best result.

    I really like the way the bells makes that transit way stop, feel more like a dwelling place, a place to listen, a place to stop.
