Esoteric Soundscapes-Rogue Speakers

Outside of downtown Vancouver's Canada Place, a pair of malfunctioning speakers caught my attention. These site sounds proved interesting as the glass canopy that the speakers were housed-in created a reverberant acoustic space, and simultaneously, other "functioning" speakers filled that space with generic radio songs. The resulting track is a combination of two recordings from this location, although no overlaying or augmenting of sound has taken place. The majority of the track is a close-up recording beneath the canopy, but concludes with a recording from slightly farther away (about ten meters), allowing for peripheral sounds -- like that of construction -- to be heard.

I love the image (the soundscape is pretty good too).
