la rue des rêves/audio
July 10, 2008
from now until august 31, 2008
the audio component of “la rue des rêves” can be heard from 12:30 to 1:00 and from 8:00 to 8:30 every day from the loud speakers situated along avenue mont-royal either between boyer and christophe-colomb in front of the inter-marché or between cartier and chabot in front of the parc des compagnons.
you can go to the tourist kiosk in front of metro mont-royal and ask for the “dream i-pod.” however, you will need to leave some form of collateral in exchange for the i-pod…which of course will be returned to you when you return the i-pod. there are three installments of the “dream-ipod” with different dreams selected for each installment.
you can go to the paysages éphémères website and download the mp3s yourself. there are three installments of the “dream-ipod” with different dreams selected for each installment.
in addition: the plateau mont-royal library, just across the street from the mont-royal metro, is playing “whispered dreams” in the library at the rate of one dream per hour.
the rue des rêves would like to extend a warm thank you to marco antonio luna barahona from homeless nation for his technical expertise in the audio department, to laurence roux from paysages éphémères for her undying optimism and patience through the months spent on this project, and to vesna dell’olio from the bibliothèque du plateau mont-royal for her openness and kindness in allowing the silence of the library to be broken.
