Preview of a 2-hour film Fieldrecording in Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos & Thailand - a sonic adventure through Southeast Asia.
From 2005 onwards I have been travelling extensively in Vietnam, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia.
Although I was immediately struck by all the incredible sounds and music of the region, it wasn’t until 2008 that I started making fieldrecordings of ceremonies, natural and urban environments and music performances.
I have always been interested in traditional culture and artefacts, as well as how new developments relate to tradition.
From hundreds of audiovisual recordings I made over the years I created this audiovisual journey through mainland Southeast Asia, which shows an enormous diversity of soundscapes - from vibrant metropoles like Saigon, Bangkok & Phnom Penh, to rural areas and rainforest.
