I just took a moment or two to play a quick improvisation here. It doesn't have a name, but it's probably my brain's way of interpreting the incredible variety of sounds that I've been hearing in the last day or two: the call to prayer that floats over the old stone buildings, the sound of an Oud player plucking gently in the distance, Achron-like Jewish melodies, and the bustle of the overcrowded arabic markets (no British-style health and safety laws here!). Even the ice cream vans play beautiful (loud) orchestral music!

The acoustic mêlée that results is a completely wild fusion of the most contrasting sounds... but somehow, they together make up a coherant soundscape that is the soundtrack to daily life in Jerusalem.
