On a recent visit to Istanbul I recorded several ‘soundwalks’ through the cityscape. The recordings were made with a discreet pair of self-made binaural mics (Panasonic wm-61a capsules) on a Sony PCM-D50. What becomes clear is that moving through space (as opposed to a stationary recording position) reveals just how diverse the spaces are in Istanbul). These walks were done as a casual pace, occasionally pausing to highlight particular sounds.
