This is a rather long take done during a bicycle ride in downtown Seville using a pair of lapel microphones (Shure WL183) attached to my shirt, plugged into a Fel preamp > Edirol R09 recorder.
From the beginning to minute 3 you'll hear street ambiance near the Cathedral (voices, footsteps, an accordion, a tram passing close). Minute 3 through 21 has park ambiance at Jardines de Murillo (Starling, Pigeon, Blackbird and Parrot calls, voices, footsteps) along with (too much) traffic rumble in background. From minute 21 to 24 there are voices and footsteps, but not much traffic noise (Barrio de Santa Cruz, a narrow street area). From 24 to the end you have a full tourist area atmosphere with accordions, voices that speak in several languages, horse-drawn carriages, footsteps, birds (Swifts screechs), and finally a street musician playing his violin. All through the sample you may hear sometimes my breathing, maybe some mumbling, and the noise of the bike on the pavement. The sample is compressed but sounds good, the original is available upon request.
