London Sound Survey have collected 800 recordings from in and around London, to represent London life, past and present.
You can hear a real difference when you travel to a market in another country. The stallholders in Spain are much more relaxed, not trying to haggle and barter with you like in London. Listen to the sounds of a Spanish outdoor market in Oviedo courtesy of Oscar de Avila.
In Marrakech, Morocco, they host one of the craziest markets known to man. In the centre of the city at Jemaa el-Fnaa, you will find stalls to buy your groceries, fix your car, buy your furniture, buy a snake….the list goes on! SoundCloud user radiozumbido has captured the sound of standing in the centre of Jemaa el-Fnaa when this market is going on, it sounds like pure mayhem.
The market was and still is a way of life for many people. The sounds that come along with them can characterize a nation, each unique to its own.
That’s all for this week’s Found Sounds! Tune in next week for more crazy sounds from the ‘Cloud.
