about

In this album, I would love to give you a little taste of how the traffic in Bali sounds like. I didn't made it to the north and not to the east of the island because of the earthquakes and the weather but I think I got a nice selection of different areas.

It is high season in Bali and normally we come in March or September in the slow season and the traffic is still bad but July/August? Wow, I couldn't believe it.

I made the most recordings on different streets and intersection in Ubud but I also went down to Denpasar and Sidemen.
In Denpasar, I recorded the market and in Sidemen, I recorded night sounds in the rice fields so stay tuned for that album.

If you listen to the two tracks from Denpasar the traffic sound from the distance is recorded from the Cineplex cinema facing the street. The distance is about 10 meters and I used the Zoom H6 for it. All other recordings are made with the DPA 4060 and the Zoom F4.

The second recording in Denpasar is made on a huge intersection and traffic comes from all four directions. While I was recording another earthquake happened. That was around 3 PM and it felt like I was swimming.
Libby was at home covered under the table with the helmet on.

In Sidemen, I only recorded two motorbikes driving by next to the rice fields that I recorded.

All other recordings are made in Ubud what gives you a taste on how extreme it is for such a small town.
