Sounds of NYC.

For those who have moved away and miss the sounds, or for those who have never been and wonder what it sounds like, listen to Folk Songs for the Five Points, from New York's Tenement Museum. Dissonance in all it's aural beauty.

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Creative, open-ended, place-based, satisfying.

But then, everything that museum does is completely cool.

The Five Points? But it's missing something …

Oh, yeah: "Ears and noses will be the trophies of the day."

Gotta add that into my mix.

I don't know what inspired someone to do this, but I'm glad they did. Thanks!
