World Ear Project:
Dinner Party on Bowen Island, B. C.

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 57 mins
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

As part of KPFA’s World Ear Project, in which ambient field recordings from around the world were gathered for possible broadcast, this is a recording of a dinner party at the house of Paul and Ruth Ohannesian, on Bowen Island in British Columbia, Canada. The couple along with Paul’s brothers, John and David, are joined by David Friedman, Jennifer Smith, Charles Amirkhanian, and his wife Carol Law for dinner and conversation, all preserved for posterity in this ambient recording. Topics touched upon during the hour long meal include the recording equipment, which when monitored over headphones presents a delay effect that the children can be heard experimenting with, the meal itself, which included edible wild plants, and the quality of Canadian wine.
