Quiet American – Burma

Quiet American is known for his very interesting and clear field recordings done around the world. This release was original recorded in the years 2000 and 2001 and released at an unknown date. Burma are all of the sounds used in his 2001 album Tesselation 1: Moments in Burma. Each separate recording on its own track completely unedited.

This release has an excellent selection of Burmese soundscapes. Most tracks are recordings of populated areas, my favorite type of field recording. The ambiance of a land unknown; foreign chatter, cars and tracks driving past, children playing, misc clangs and bangs. This release also contains some recordings of music, some of it playing through completely burnt sound systems. This is an excellent album and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in field recordings.
