Paris departure board daydream

Paris departure board reimagined by Robert Kellough.

"I very much enjoyed working with this sound. The voices of a bustling train station and the syncopation of the boards immediately drew me to this recording.  One of my last trips abroad was to the Pyrenees and I did take the train from Toulouse to Paris as part of that trip. I imagine I heard similar sounds at the station and completely took them for granted. I dream of traveling again and treated this sound as a daydream of visiting the train station. A daydream suddenly interrupted. I am hopeful for travel in 2021.  I'd like to hear those boards again for myself."
