Construction and traffic at the intersection of Yonge and Gerrard streets.

A fairly typical afternoon with the addition of some jackhammers for ambiance. The crew digging up the eastbound lanes on Gerrard Street East were running a compressor and vacuum excavator, while traffic pass between them and the recorder causes their volume to peak and decline. This track has an overly abrupt fade out at the end but the volume increase at the beginning is how I found it. No other processing has been applied.

Included in this audio clip is a truck backing up, several buses driving past, a taxi's horn, people walking in heels, and snippets of conversation in at least a couple of different languages. To recreate the actual experience the volume should be set to be uncomfortably loud.
