Options March 9, 2012: Charles Powne: Indian Soundscapes - Rajasthan

CHARLES POWNE: INDIAN SOUNDSCAPES - RAJASTHAN

1. TEMPLE BELLS, JHUNJHUNU 
Recorded from window of hotel room. I was sick with a bad case of Delhi Belly and it was all I could manage to record, and it's not very interesting!
2. SUNSET AT PUSHKAR
A really magical coincidence of location, time, and sounds. I'm right in the middle of some great conversations, there are nice birds, the temple bells are echoing across the lake. I'm moving across the bridge so the soundscapes keeps evolving gradually. Ends with some ugly American voices, unfortunately....
3. WALKING INTO PUSHKAR
All the sounds, including loud passing cars, music, people. It's very dynamic.
4. WEDDING BAND, PUSHKAR
Music so terrible, it's beyond description, it's so wrong.
5. GUTTERAL VOICED MAN, PUSHKAR
Sounds like a Tuvan throat singer. Heard in the background towards the end of the song. Not very good recording, could have been much better! Lots of vehicles and disco music.
6. SUNSET AT PUSHKAR
Similar to track 2, but not as magical. Starts with people talking, bells ringing in background, birds, music. I go walking along the bridge to the other side of the lake. It ends at the temple with very loud bells.
7. EVENING TEMPLE BELLS, PUSHKAR
A continuation of track 6, but I had to turn the input level down because the volume was so high. After a while the bells stop and they sing for a while. It ends quietly.
8. RANDOM TUNINGS.
Arabic, with static.
9. WALKING IN UDAIPUR
Could be anywhere in the third world: a cacophony of motors and horns. Boring.
10. FROGS, JHODPUR
The people talking and the humming of airconditioners is as loud as the frogs. The last minute is better.
11. FROGS, JHODPUR
Frogs with fewer distracting sounds. Not overwhelmingly interesting.
