Dogs bark, roosters crow, and trucks and tractors make their way down the road during the early morning rush in a small French agricultural village.

GELLERMAN: We leave you this week in a small French village.
[ROOSTERS CROWING, TRUCKS GO BY, DOGS BARK, BELLS RING]
GELLERMAN: It’s morning in Sermerieu, an agricultural town, southeast of Lyon. Church bells ring, trucks, cars, and tractors are on the move…and roosters, birds, and dogs join in the mix. Steven Feld recorded this soundscape for his series “The Time of Bells.”
