This Blog is a collection of my recordings and collectings from travelling around Asia...
expect lots of obscure instruments, strange sounds, electric and acoustic instruments, obscure records and tapes, and any other sounds i find on the road.
Please be Patient, as the site is very content heavy, the Soundcloud streams are a bit slow to load...

Night Market Erhu

Lots of recordings from an Erhu Player at the night market:
Here (not a very clean recording, some pops i couldn't fix)

Luang Probang Monk Chang

Over Amplified (through a crappy PA and Air Raid style metal speaker cones) chanting from a Monastary on the other side of the Nam Khong over the old Soviet Bridge.
there was a dog in the temple that really hated falongs, everyone that came through he barked at, so i made most of the recordings just outside of the temple wall, but this is the first one, and the dog is standing right next to me barking his head off. couldn't fix the clipping.
there was a break with some pre-recorded music Here
then a second monk took over the chanting Here
