roland etzin - transmongolian (album preview) by Experimedia published on 2013-09-06T02:17:27Z *Excerpts from the album. Now available from Experimedia.net.* TransMongolian is a composition of unprocessed field recordings composed in soundscapes. I recorded these acoustic phenomena on my journey through Russia, along Lake Baikal, through Mongolia, China and South Korea to Japan. These countries do not only have very different landscapes and ways of life, they also differ in their sounds, a dimension which more often than not goes unnoticed. The 6 acoustic portraits reflect what I found to be representative of or very special about the countries. Portrait 1 (Recorded in Russia, 08/2010) Portrait 2 (Recorded in China, 08/2010) Portrait 3 (Recorded at Lake Baikal, 08/2010) Portrait 4 (Recorded in Mongolia, 08/2010) Portrait 6 (Recorded in Japan, 10/2010) 6 Tracks (52'54?) CD (500 copies) This CD is part of the "Via Mongolia" project, an exhibition which took place at B105, Apres-Midi and MV Agusta in Seoul / South Korea from 19th – 31st August, 2010. The project presented sound recordings by Roland Etzin and pictures by Katrin Hoedemacker and Roland Etzin. "Via Mongolia" was curated by Mary Song, coordinated by Jina Nam and supported by Gruenrekorder. Thanks to all, especially Jiyeon Kim at Sound@Media, Lasse-Marc Riek and Young Kyun Ryoo for their friendly support. TransMongolian was broadcasted on Deutschlandradio Kultur in March 2012. The Audio Track "Portrait 6 (Japan)" was on "The Wire Tapper 29" CD with The Wire magazine in July 2012.
