USburbia: Retail was culled from over 6 hours of recordings made in various retail establishments in northern Delaware. Saturdays, for many in the United States, is meant for shopping which in turn means spending money they don't have. The first two tracks are from the Christiana Mall which attracts thousands of people from bordering states as Delaware does not have sales tax, so stores that sell big ticket items, such as the Apple Store, are always quite busy. Well, there is nothing quite as American (or un-American) as Walmart, so it was natural that a recording needed to be made there. The fourth track is the Farmer's Market in New Castle, Delaware, just up the road from the Walmart. It is a combination of fish markets, butchers and vendors selling anything and everything. In Delaware. the Walmart and the Farmers Market are the exclusive domain of the working class, while the Liquor Store welcomes all: rich or poor, black or white.

“Sabah El Noor” Cairo Mall is about the maniac street sellers shouting in all directions in the chaotic streets of Cairo.
“Taala.” Twenty million of inhabitants and the strangers over the sun.
“Bisswaraah.” Cairo Mall is about the maniac mosque callers shouting to the megaphone in the improvised praying stands along the sidewalks.
“Elhamd llahlah.” Cairo Mall is about the maniac tourist hunters always trying to catch you with strange prays to make you go on the boats over the Nile to see who knows the mutant crocodile, half human half alligator.
“Felucca Etneen Guinê.” Cairo Mall is about the maniac taxi drivers always trying to go faster as the traffic gets more confuse.
“Raya Feh?” Cairo Mall is about the maniac people that make their lives on the street, there they stay all the day looking for an opportunity to talk, they will ask your name, they will spell you name, they will find an equivalent in Arabic for your name, they will search about the meaning and after the discussion maybe they will try to make some kind of business.
“Felous Fluss” All this is orchestral, but the musicians need to be paid. “Doesn’t matter if people do not speak the same language, they have to talk, they have to laugh, they have to discuss, they have to go, because think too much is bad.
“Ma Salama!” These street recordings were made around Ramses square, Tahrir square and under the bridges in Ataba. In these areas is possible to find some charismatic personages that act as street musicians. The erk sous seller is a man that transports with him a big pot with some kind of fava liquor and play sagat, a kind of tip bell to call the clients. The rebaba seller always playing the same song about the Luxor enchants and trying to sell his homemade rababa violin to kids and strangers. Sometimes appears a short van full of gas bottles and a man hit the bottles with a stick making a metallic noise to call the people that need to change their gas bottles. There are some ambulant vegetable sellers, mainly woman, crossing the areas around downtown and shouting “mororreia” a kind of grape tree cooked leaf and “rass”, in Portuguese alface, eventually with Arabic roots. Everythind a big salad. A life crude salad with all the ancient gods present.
