Bivouac Recording – Growing Up With Shanghai- Xin Jian Lu

Growing Up With Shanghai- Xin Jian Lu is an album/song by Bivouac Recording that was released on the label Bivouac Recording in 2015. This release is a field recording and part of a series called Growing Up With Shanghai. In this series the recorder goes throughout Shanghai and finds people who are willing to talk about the city, their experiences, and so on, while walking through the city.

This is a massive field recording, being an hour and 36 minutes in length. Throughout the entire recording you can hear Xin Jian Lu, the girl featured in this recording, talking in Chinese. The recorder never speaks in the recording and all of the recorded dialogue is Chinese. Her speech is accompanied by traffic sounds, walking sounds, other people talking, music, birds, and occasionally people she seems to know starting up conversations with her. This is an awesome recording and concept. You can read up on his project and listen and download for free below.
