Description

Sounds from a typical day during lockdown in Bourges, France (ignoring remote working, of course):

0:0s: churches ring at 7:30 AM
2:00 s: birds recorded from my balcony
4m:30s: bells ring the mass
8m:10s: playing fetch with my cat
9m:00s: going out (1 hour/ 1 km radius), rain over fallen leaves in Prés Fichaux garden.
13m:15s: night walk in the deserted streets of Bourges, Saint Etienne Cathedral at 9PM
15m:20s: bat screams (played at 10% speed)
17m:10s: end of the day, reading in bed with my cat

The field recordings were mostly done from my balcony, the garden nearby or at night in the streets. 

Recorded by Jeremy Simoncello.

Part of the StayHomeSounds project to map and reimagine the sounds of the Covid-19 lockdowns.
