World Ear Project:
Mornings on a Farm and in a City, Aug. 1970

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 54 mins
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

A couple of ambient field recordings made by Charles Amirkhanian in August of 1970. First is a recording made in the early morning of Aug. 9, 1970 at a farm on Bowen Island, British Columbia. Although the levels are rather low the distinctive sound of a cock crowing can be repeatedly heard as can the sounds of chickens and perhaps rabbits being fed. This is followed by a recording made in Seattle WA, on Aug. 12, 1970, of traffic noise, some seagulls, distant foghorns and low flying airplanes. The recording finishes with the sounds of distorted breathing, humming and laughter, as traffic can be heard in the distance.
