Barack Obama Elected President of the United States: Harvard Square Celebration!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never seen anything like this. A spontaneous wide scale eruption of cheering, celebration, and congregation in tribute to the election of Barack Obama as the next President of the United States. This went on for hours in the streets which had to be closed down. People were simply beside themselves with excitement yet everything was hugely peaceful.

There were people everywhere, chants, tears of joy, cars honking, more enthusiasm than I have ever seen before in my entire life!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The enthusiasm of hope and change!!!!!!!!!!!!

Astounding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Sound of Hope and Change:
(Use Headphones for All Recordings)
Obama Election Night Celebration - Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA, USA by BinauralAirwaves
Microphone Setup: In-Ear Microphones
Master Recording Format: 44.1kHz/24bit

Harvard Square:
For much of the recording I was facing north looking at the large crowd centered in the half circle thing that swirls around in the square.

Translation Note: Some of the chants are in Spanish. "¡Sí se puede!" translates to "Yes, we can!".

A tapestry of 700 newspaper covers from around the globe with the news of Obama's victory.

I hope that people around the world can share the experience and excitement that this monumental event is.

Hey man,
Great sounds! Was good to see this happen on tv, better even to hear it like you're there yourself.. it just really works.
Do you know if you're going to put the 12tonar recordings of rokkurro etc online some time? Would love to hear those too :)

Hey Eelke,

Great to meet you at Airwaves. I actually have 3 really great Rokkurro concerts that I absolutely need to get around to posting--Their shows were some of my very favorite of Airwaves. I was basically going in chronological order but I think I'll probably post at least 1 of the Rokkurro concerts next (likely this weekend). Hope to talk to you soon. Take it easy.
