Two Urban Orchestras: San Francisco and Habana

Two Urban Orchestras: San Francisco and Habana presents the vitality of two urban acoustic ecologies, where animals and noise each carry a signature as part of the soundscape score of the ecosystem.  These signatures provide unique voices and rhythms within which life occurs.  With credit to the bioacoustician Bernie Krause.

Part I:  Lapidge Alley on a remarkably warm night in the densely populated urban Mission District of San Francisco.  Recorded from the street and a second story window between 7pm and 11pm one evening in March 2011.

Part II:  Three blocks in the residential urban Vedado section of downtown Habana, Cuba.  Recorded from a third floor balcony and the street over three days in March 2015.
