Eclectic Mainline 15th May 2013

One of the most interesting albums I have heard this year is Voices by Kink Gong on Descrepant Reocords.  The album is based on location recordings Laurent Jeanneau made in South East Asia.  Laurent has manipulated the recordings, but with reverence to the original performers, and the end result is rather marvellous.  As I first listened, and read about the project, I thought of the field recordings I made during my own travels in South East Asia.  I keep thinking that I should do something with these recordings, at the very least put them online for people to hear.  Hearing Voices may just be the inspiration I need to finally do this.  Have a listen to the hypnotic, captivating opening track from Voices here:

I played that in my show on BCB this week, as I did this by Deco Child:
