World Soundprint: Pacific (Audio)
Jan 01, 1993
Created by Joseph Celli and Jin Hi Kim
Two widely traveled musicians and well-known new music artists combine their creative sensibilities in search of the indigenous "soundprint" of four Asian countries. Many location recordings, such as, of aboriginal drones, the clanging cymbals of Korean shamans, the double reeds of Japan, the winds of New Zealand, sounds from airports around the Pacific Rim, and overheard conversations, identify and capture an aspect particular to and characteristic of a site or location on the composers' travels. Commissioned by New American Radio.
