The Sound of Montreal

So used was I to living between the concrete walls back home that I was surprise by how pervious the walls of the apartments I’ve lived here in Montreal are to sound. Back at the Trylon, I could near when the neighbours come home, the kids were usually the first I hear.

My current apartment is better, sound mainly comes through the door or the ventilation system. It’s usually the closing or locking of the neighbours’ doors or when they come back with a big group of friends but the ventilation has a way of making sounds seem like they come from inside the apartment, especially late at night.

The worst part of it all? I’m sure I’m not supposed to or even want to hear some of the things that get through the walls of my apartment…
