Berlin Flagpoles

First lunch break from the Prix Europa, on the Sunday, I crossed the road and made a couple of wee recordings. It was lovely!

Archive: retail therapy

A random finding in the archive (iTunes was on shuffle, in other words) just now. The week I bought my first flash-based sound recorder (Edirol R-09) in Tokyo,…
