bradford centenary square, 5.27pm. a huge crowd had gathered to watch the england vs trinidad & tobago world cup football match on the big screen in the square. [not the most relaxing of situations, or the quietest!]

leeds city art gallery, around closing time. preparations were being made for what was apparently some sort of after-hours business presentation. a nicely hectic moment in a usually very calm space.

in the underground deer shelter at the yorkshire sculpture park, bretton hall, near wakefield, visiting an installation by “light-artist” james turrel.

the installation was beautiful transcendent stuff, but i was fascinated by an aspect probably unintended by mr turrel—ie the soundscape [as you’d imagine, maybe]. the shape of the interior of the deer shelter [square, with walls which slope inwards towards the bottom] and the hard materials of which it is built, make for extremely reverberant acoustics, where all sound is very interestingly transformed, so even the crows flying overhead [heard through a hole in the roof, through which a section of sky is revealed] end up sounding electronically treated.
