Recording Locations


Chartres Cathedral

Chartres Cathedral rises above the River Eure's fertile plain about 90km southwest of Paris and is one of the most enigmatic buildings in the World, full of mysterious symbolism of the type so much loved by Parking Non-Stop. During their visit, they managed to record a group of Japanese nuns on a pilgrimage, along with other general ambience.

Paris metro

Whilst traveling across Paris, Parking Non-Stop chanced upon some rappers busking in an acoustically interesting tunnel

St Michel / St Germain / Rue Git Le Coeur

Whilst wandering the left bank of the Seine in search of food, members of the collective inadvertently stumbled upon number 9, Rue Git Le Coeur, once home to William S. Burroughs, one of Parking Non-Stop's greatest influences.

Paris metro / Charles De Gaulle airport

General travel sounds were captured during a journey to Paris airport.

Buda Castle, Budapest

An art & craft fair was taking place during the week leading up to Hungary's national holiday, St Stephen's day. Members of Parking Non-Stop recorded the sounds of an open air theatrical performance outside Buda castle.

Chain Bridge, Budapest

The late night bustle of pedestrians crossing from Buda into Pest on the city's most famous bridge was captured as Parking Non-Stop made their way back to their base after the festivities at Buda castle.


St Stephen's day mass, Budapest

A disappointingly low key and sombre event for what is supposedly Hungary's most inportant festival.

"For Sale" pub, Budapest

Whilst stopping for a beer in a supposedly "British style" pub, members of Parking Non-Stop were treated to the sounds of a Rock 'n' Roll covers duo, who had seemingly learned their entire repertoire phonetically, rendering their versions far more interesting than the originals.

Outdoor rock festival, Csarnok Ter., Budapest

Being devout Euro-pop fans, members of Parking Non-Stop were delighted to find that top Hungarian europoppers Pa Dö Do were playing a special St Stephen's day festival in square next to the Danube.

Cafe, Kosice, Slovakia

Members of Parking Non-Stop spent a couple of hours in the industrial regional capitol of Eastern Slovakia whilst waiting for a train connection. More bells were recorded.

Danube in flood, Budapest, 18th August 2002

Szoborpark, Budapest August 2002

Zoë at the Warhol Museum, Medzilaborce, 23rd August 2002

Eastern Slovakian railway

Members of Parking Non-Stop traveled by train from Kosice to the remote eastern Slovak town of Medzilaborce, family home of Andy Warhol, one of Parking Non-Stop's greatest influences. On the way, they recorded the sound of the train, which provided a fine rhythm track for a new piece.

Chata kpt. Moravku pri Popradskom Plese, High Tatras, Slovakia

During a walk in the High Tatras, members of Parking Non-Stop sheltered from the rain and enjoyed a beer in this remote bar, several hours' walk from the nearest road.

Paris, 5th April 2002

Poprad, Slovakia

More cafe ambience whilst waiting for a train.

Slovakia / Hungary border

Train announcements were recorded in this remote rail junction on the line between Kosice and Miscolc.

Buda Labyrinth

Beneath the Buda citadel lies a vast ancient network of natural caverns and man-made tunnels and chambers. Although now transformed into a multi media tourist experience, it retains a surreal charm. As well as making several recordings in the labyrinthine chambers, the images used as backgrounds here are derived from details of the labyrinth's walls.


Menai Bridge Fair

Well it's only down the road
