Acoustic Cameras or the Great Unreal Film

Investigation by Arnaud Maguet

Summary

This thing is addictive, you should know. Recaps of the episodes so far:
An astronomical observatory on a mountain in the Canary Islands, the sky as blue as blue can be, in the distance a sea, also quite blue. The observatory is closed, but we, we observe it.
Elsewhere, but not later in time, nobody is doing laundry in Bordeaux.

It is snowing in various places. This occurs for meteorological reasons, and sometimes also for static ones.

And so the great film of reality drifts on, promising to capture, highlight and amplify the website Acoustic Cameras. If, for example, you find yourself in a melancholic state of mind and stuck inside of Mobile (where the sun is shining, the waters of the Gulf of Mexico make gentle waves and the palm trees…
