World Ear Project:
Series 2, April 22, 1985

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 118 min
Event Type: Other Finds Program Origin: KPFA

This program is the third in a new series of ambient field recordings from around the world. The original World Ear Project series was broadcast on KPFA in the early 1970s, as the portable cassette recorder first made such an ambitious undertaking economically affordable. In this, the second series, the idea of collecting sounds from unique and unusual environments from all over the world remains the same, however the advances in field recording technologies, including digital recording, make for a much higher quality experience. In this program Charles Amirkhanian, and Richard Friedman, present tapes recorded in San Francisco, and other locations.
