Recording, Collecting & Creating

Creating the soundtrack for fieldnotes in pictures.

From using the Rode ixy microphone attached to my iphone to record sounds in the field, collecting records from a flat in Sham Shui Po (Home of vinyl hero Paul Au Tak-shing) to digging for cassette tapes in the secondhand stores around Lok Ku Road.

All these sources eventually made it back to my home studio in Melbourne where the process of making sense of sounds I collected and creating the soundtrack takes place.
I tried to either represent a place I had recorded or signify some element of Hong Kong's culture.

The final part of the process was mastering the audio with Joseph Carra at Crystal Mastering, the final stage before sending the soundtrack of to be made into a vinyl record.
