Talk about using the air space as public property–that’s what The Peoples’ March today was all about! Folks having the right to peacefully demonstrate and exercising freedom of speech.
I went to the march to capture some of what Pittsburgh sounds like when it’s protesting. Things moved so fast that I didn’t have time to ask folks names or to list them as collaborators. Sorry! If you happen to know anyone here, or want to share your story, please write in to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll edit the blog with more accurate information. Thanks to all the people who came out to the march/shared their sounds today!
The first tone I recorded at the march (with the willing help of this gent!) was the Drummer Protest Tone.
The second was the Free Tibet (Cymbals) Tone. As you can see, numerous protesters attended the march in support of this cause.
Then I found a gent playing his tambourine. Here’s his Tambourine Protest Tone.
This awesome band took the stage before the march, and I recorded their sound-making. Check out the Peoples’ March Protest Band Tone.
I next heard and recorded a group of women-protesters! Here’s their Code Pink Power Tone.
I’m not exactly sure where the following crowd-chanting tones came from–the march was so thick with people and sounds. But here are the final two tones from the Peoples’ March series:
Here are the are other photos from the march worth sharing:
