Lohbado tries to sort out sights and sounds in the city of Montreal, while doing his best to find lost cats and to let sleeping dogs lie. In this video, Lohbado contrasted the high decibel roar of city streets with the relative quiet of indoor moments. The percussion track was made by recording a recycling truck outside Lohbado's front window. The truck made a dramatic drum-like sound as a metal arm lifted a bucket and dumped contents into the back of the truck. Lohbado also tried recording a truck as he stood in a phone booth. Playing with sound is something Lohbado began at 13, using a cassette recorder with builtin mic. When Lohbado finally got a computer in about the year 2001, he began creating a sound library.
