  • Availability:

This is a CD released by Mirt and Ter, field recording artists from Warsaw, Poland, in May 2024 from saamleng, a label specializing in field recordings.

Contains 15 field recordings that focus on the sounds of loudspeakers that flood Cambodia. 6-sided gatefold, shrink specification.

"Whether it's the distant echoes of a local wedding's sound system or the screeching advertisements from a street vendor traveling on a scooter, the landscapes of Southeast Asia are filled with a myriad of loudspeaker voices. is a collection of recordings exclusively from around Phnom Penh, but in many ways common to the entire region: in the countryside, in temples, in city streets, on cell phones, PA systems, or even simple beeps. It is full of man-made sounds generated by sounds. Sometimes it adds a unique flavor to the place, like when listening to the soft sounds of local music in the middle of a vast rice field, or other birds. Even in the most remote locations, the almost inaudible bass of a large speaker can be far away, as when playing bird calls near a silo to scare away birds. In urban areas, voice messages take on a unique character, especially when amateur-recorded advertisements are looped through toy-like megaphones. I tried to put together all the elements that define ".

saamleng:

"Whether it's the distant echoes of local wedding sound systems or the screeching advertisements coming from mobile scooter-powered stalls, the Southeast Asian landscape is filled with the voices of myriads of loudspeakers. This collection compiles only recordings from around Battambang and Phnom Penh in Cambodia, but in many ways is universal for the entire region. The countryside, the temples, and city streets, are full of these artificial sounds generated by mobile phones, PA systems or even simple beepers. Sometimes it just adds a unique flavor to the place, as when you hear the soft sounds of local music among vast rice fields, other times it is surreal, even slightly disturbing, as in the case of bird recordings played near the silos to scare away other avians. Sometimes even in the most remote places you are accompanied by an almost inaudible distant bass throbbing of large speakers. In cities, voice messages take on a unique character, especially when they are amateur-recorded advertisements looped in toy-like megaphones. We tried to bring together all these soundscape defining elements on this album."
