Vol. 22: Battle of the Buskers

It was an experiment in sound recording and also a very positive chat afterwards. The participants didn't realise they were being recorded until later and no doubt they were well aware of each other while they were spouting forth.

On the left was Mark Campbell, he is a whistling busker from Wolverhampton. He is also blind. In the middle was Gypsy Tom, the street preacher, telling the world about God and Jesus.

Meanwhile I was sitting on the steps to the right of the photo above, in between the first two pillars. In my ears I had binaural microphones, designed to reproduce the actual sound of the world around me.

If you listen to the first part outside, wearing headphones, you should get an excellent and spooky effect. Close your eyes and you will be transported to Guildford High Street on the 6th August, 2005.

Once it has finished we talked with both participants and found out why? And for how long?

Take to the streets!
