sample the album:
"This Courtyards project focuses on the intimate and visceral symphony of domestic activity reverberating throughout a variety of shared courtyard spaces in Paris. The different locations range from classic apartment buildings to modern project-housing estates - with each courtyard possessing a variety of unique architectural qualities that offer clear conditions to experience the delicate sounds of domestic apartment living. These qualities can also be seen to provide each space with a distinct acoustic characteristic that is often not consciously acknowledged, but which helps to form a social dynamic within an apartment complex, and a sense of place, belonging and home amongst its residents."-Martin Kay, 2016
