Hsinchu Field Recordings

Almost 12 years ago I was creating a number of sound art and interactive art installations which required me to go out and do some field recordings. My equipment was relatively crude but the end result didn’t depend on high-fidelity. I’m not really sure how I feel about those pieces now, lots of discordance and general noise. I guess much like my trumpet playing from years prior.

Going through my old work archive I found a number of the source files, some of which I have shared below:

Sound file 1

Sound file 2

Sound file 3

Sound file 4

Sound file 5

Sound file 6

Sound file 7

Some of the above will sound familiar to anyone who has lived in Taiwan for any length of time. All sounds were recorded in Hsinchu City.
