This is the end of my Indonesian journey after six weeks on 3 islands: Bali, Lombok and Java.
What I will remember of this country is all this beautiful meetings, hospitable people and incredible scenery: black sand beaches, mountains, volcanoes, rice fields, …
I discovered a new culture where two religions lives together, Hinduism and Islam in a climate rather peaceful, like what, it’s possible.
It was quite an adventure, it’s a destination I highly recommend to any adventurer.
I recorded a lot and after a quick check I get a wide variety of soundscapes.
I was a little disappointed about my jungles excursions, they were not very singing at this time of the year, too wet, I had to compensate with beautiful monsoon made in Asia.
Shortly after my arrival, started a very important festival for Hindus, Galungan. Music and ceremonies at all street corners, so great for a soundman!
Markets where they sell everything from towns, villages, music and nature, ten hours of rushes should give me occupation for some weeks.
I exported some excerpts for you to share them.
Be indulgent, it is edited with headphones and a bit in a hurry.
One thought on “Field recordings : Indonesia”
I Was recording in Indonesia 3 gears ago.
what I liked most it was the variety of soundscapes depending on where you were Muslim Buddhist or balines area,
