Crescent Street - lockdown in Montreal

Cities and Memory - remixing the world

19-05-2022 • 2 mins

Recording at the corner of Crescent St and Saint-Catherine St. Cars are slowly driving through the intersection with their tires passing through the snow. In the background, there is a parked truck with its engine on and moments of a few distant voices. This street usually hosts many types of restaurants/bars, yet they have been closed for an extended period and therefore there is no one around these areas.

Recorded by Georgios Varoutsos.
