With the shut down of a large part of the public life in Vancouver I noticed two major changes.

  1. The air quality improved
  2. My neighbourhood is much quieter due to less cars.

But that wasn't the only thing. I no longer have drunk people hang out on the beach at night or have the pubs trash their empties in the middle of the night.

So I decided to go for a "sound walk" and record usually busy places to capture how the sound scape in the city has changed. There is still ample hammering and people revving their engines, but much less so than you would expect with the weather we have.

Note that the video only has stills of the locals. I decided against shooting video as I wanted people to concentrate on the audio instead of the visual changes.

If you just want to listen to the audio there is also a soundcloud version.

I recommend listening with headphones for the best experience.
