The date is April 15, 2009.
The location is The Rabble Podcast Network .. an eclectic collection of some really great Canadian content. Rabble will be hosting the podcast, and I’ll be linking it to this blog so you can listen without leaving this page.
Here’s the short form:
The Roaming Ear – Around the World with a Mike
Victoria Fenner doesn’t just bring her camera when she travels. She always makes sure she has her recorder and microphone in her bag. Sometimes she records found sound .. fishermen hauling in their nets from the Arabian sea, old fashioned Appalachian square dance band on hot, buggy mountain summer nights. Sometimes she’ll do radio stories about the people, places and issues she encounters. And she’ll also take those sounds and makes compositions out of them that some people describe as music ..
It will be an adventure .. first episode .. “These are a Few of my Favourite Sounds” .. with the aforementioned fishermen, bugs and square dance musicians making a guest appearance.
(PS – the picture was taken by Tom my safari driver on the banks of Lake Nakuru in Kenya, recording the sounds of thousands of pink flamingos. Looked great, sounded great .. smelled like a chicken coop!)
