Sound recording of bicycle bell rung by Kwanza Hall on the Proctor Creek Greenway (PCG). Recorded with Zoom H6 recorder and Rode NTG2 shotgun condenser microphone. The bright, almost shrill chirp of the bell cuts through the otherwise serene soundscape of the PCG. Despite not conforming with the rest of the soundscape, however, it is nevertheless part of the welcoming culture of the PCG as it is the sound of multiple people and multiple methods of transportation interacting—it is the sound of a biker warning those on foot that s/he is approaching. It is additionally a sound of the safe pathway within the PCG itself as the ringing of a bicycle bell warns everybody on the path to be alert such that no accidents happen.
