I smuggled my recorder into Belgrade courthouse, stood in the lobby, and recorded the atmosphere while the security guards weren't watching. Basically, taking photos in this building is not allowed, but as long as I have seen, it did not say anything about sound recording. Anyhow, I used the time when the security guards were not watching, went in one of the corners of the big hall and recorded this ambience. It is kinda cool, you can hear crowd of about 50 to 80 people being kinda nervous, coughing, laughing and the sounds of all kinds of important papers being officially stamped. The lobbies in our courthouses are usually a place which looks like a post office, something like an administrative part of the courthouse. Recorded with Zoom H4n. Please rate, comment and share. In case you download some of my sounds and use them in your audiovisual artwork, the only thing I ask from you is to let me know where and how they ended up. It would be a pleasure. Please feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions or suggestions. I really try to keep an open mind for everything. Thank you. Peace. Matt

    This is great! I am using this in a Sound Design project at my University. Specifically, "To Kill A Mockingbird" in the courthouse scenes.

    Nice! Using this for preliminary sound ideas for a production of Arturo Ui.

    Thanks! This was exactly what I was looking for...I'm doing a project putting sounds into a short story.
