En una pequeña calle en arles, bernardo sandoval canta.

There is a small festival which takes place in a small street (la rue reattu) of Arles each summer. People attending the concerts are crammed in a small space. The artist has to deal with street noises, engines purring, barking dogs, and so on. Bernardo Sandoval doesn't really sing, but rather whispers. Therefore this recording is more than lo-fi, it is an exercice in listening. For those who prefer seeing than listening only, there is a short video here. I've applied some compression in the middle part to hear more accurately.
