1:10. Possibly the most favorite of all me recordings in the city. Capturing this fragment of piano practice by an employee at a piano shop on Jinling Road would not have been possible without using concealed microphones.. There is something intensely poignant about the sad, sophisticated music blending with the street noise- a moment of 'Pure Shanghai'. Binaural recording- please use headphones. Recorded with DPA 4060 and SD 702. To know more about Diane and her work, please visit her website: http://www.dianehope.com/
