This is The Challenge – Record an album in 28 days, just because you can. That’s 10 songs or 35 minutes of original material recorded during the month of February. Go ahead…put it to tape. I was up for it. So I created a profile on the RPM Challenge page, recorded, processed the audio and then posted it to bandcamp. Awesome. Seven Days (RPM Challenge 2016) by parker hersch
You never know what you’re going to hear when you tune in to DS106 Radio. You’ll always hear a great selection of tunes via /AUTODJ, but it gets a whole lot better when someone unexpectedly grabs the stream and goes /LIVE. It was a late Sunday afternoon and I was in my kitchen preparing our Sunday night dinner when @bryanjack grabbed the DS106 Radio stream. @bryanjack was trying to make his way home from a Saturday night out in Port Moody, which was proving difficult to so. I decided to respond…
I recorded this DS106 video field report while skating around the Centum City precinct. The Centum City precinct is located in Haeundae, Busan, South Korea. This field report was recorded just after I had finished skating alongside the Suyeong river.
I recorded this DS106 field report while skating alongside the Suyeong river in Busan, South Korea. This is the first ds106 field report where I’ve made use of video. Unlike my previous field reports where sound or what I’m hearing has been the focus. Here the visual or what I’m seeing is the focus of the field report. The start of this field report was recorded just near the location of my Gwangan Bridge and I’PARK field report.
A field report containing distant ambient traffic sounds from the Gwangan Bridge recorded from the vantage point of a small waterfront quay in Gwangan, Busan, South Korea.
It’s quite common in South Korea for fresh fruit and vegetable merchants to drive around suburban streets in their mini-trucks spruiking their wares over a loudspeaker. This is the sound of a merchant who specialises in peaches.

It’s the end of another working week. I’m waiting outside the local pizza shop on a Friday night. I hear some nice roadside ambience. I hit record. Pizza shop interior and roadside ambience without commentary.

This could be where my preoccupation with reporting from the field began. A 2008 Voicethread of my 2004 experience of Dae Borum celebration (The first full moon of the lunar new year) held on Kwang An Beach in Busan, South Korea. Voicethread is a great web 2.0 tool that allows you to sequence a series of photographs and record a narration and/or annotation. Voicethread also allows users to add their own comments in response to your ‘thread. If you can’t view my Voicethread, here’s a rough breakdown of the Dae Borum…

My new field recording for ds106 radio. Sounds of Melbourne’s suburban train system. Listen to ds106 Field Recording 006 Metro Glen Waverly Line Location photos of my ds106 field recordings can be found over at my Flickr photostream.
The goal of my ongoing ds106 field recording is to document and share the sound story of the city of Melbourne with ds106 radio listeners. I try to record the environment as succinctly and accurately as possible. I have recorded and shared the sound of my surroundings prior to ds106 radio, but I never provided the recording with a narration to give the listener context or an entry point to the sound. I regard any environment or space as source material. From the ordinary sound of suburban traffic, to the…
