Urban Icosacomposite – Breakbeats by Boston City Hall

I moved perhaps 300 ft from my position in Quincy Market and set up my camera in the square facing City Hall, and managed to record a pair of buskers with guitars doing neo-folk instrumentals and a drummer with a collection of plastic pails. All of them were drowned out by the breakbeats blared by a group of breakdancers who set up shop at the end of the square, beguiling the tourists and eliciting cheers and gasps. If you listen carefully you can hear all these sounds and more, over the murmur of the crowd, the squawk of seagulls, and the roar of large trucks moving goods and garbage around downtown Boston.
