Voices Preserved

“Playing” – one in a series – this oral history piece collects the voices of older adults reminiscing about the games they played as children. Brilliantly crafted in a way to evoke the intercutting of neighbourhood sounds.


While out on a daily walk, I spotted the sign for it in the Harbord Village neighbourhood. Not having a phone (I couldn’t access the QR code and listen) I enjoyed the delayed gratification of following a URL (captured via a camera I carried) and of listening at leisure to the cascade of voices.
