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 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.
This is the sound of a late Korean Summer. The sound cicadas or 매 미 (meh-mee) fill the air with their wall of sound. 매 미 sound different to Australian cicadas, which I guess is no suprise. Their sound seems to come in waves, unlike their Australian counterparts who have more of a constant drone.
The sound of birds at dusk.

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.
