10/22/2008 11h40 Paris XX (France) - avenue du Professeur André Lemierre spot

On the parking places opposite nr. 50, wound round a corn-cob (see photo). Divers rap/hip-hop/dance/techno My iPhone's Shazam recognized: "Dilemma", by Nelly & Kelly Rowland.

10/22/2008 11h35 Paris XX (France) - avenue du Professeur André Lemierre spot

The second tape is black. On one side there is the letter 'R' written with Tipp-Ex (see photo). Arabic. Sounds as if this is a rather old recording.

10/22/2008 11h25 Bagnolet (France) - avenue Gallieni spot

On the pavement near nr. 96, wound around the stand of a foldable traffic sign (see photo). Arabic 'pop', with very occidental production and "effects'.

10/22/2008 11h20 Bagnolet (France) - avenue de la République spot

A second strand, on the same traffic island. Franco-Arabic. (See photo)

10/22/2008 11h17 Bagnolet (France) - avenue de la République spot
