7.00 8.00

With the ease of portable digital recording and filesharing nowadays, ethnographic field recordings are not hard to come by for any individual with enough curiosity to indulge in some audio tourism. However, it still takes a gifted ear and knack for research to import such cohesive and listenable loot that could sit alongside the finest in Nonesuch Explorer recordings. A couple listens in, I’d wager this would have gotten a thumbs up from Mr. Lewiston. Cannily edited, and captured with appropriate depth of field for each chapter, the listener gets a few stunning excerpts of the most aurally mystifying aspects of the ceremonies documented in Picco’s film Kalinga Utkal, bumpered with sounds from the surrounding environment to establish the setting. The chants that dominate the first side are the clear highlight, as they seem at times borderline inhuman or synthesized (I had to check to make sure if the digital pitch control wasn’t engaged on my Handi-Cassette II). The wedding band recording is more along the lines of what might get dropped into the bustling street market scene of an action movie, but is nevertheless intriguing and authentic. Major accolades due to the documentarian for gaining access and harvesting such wonderful sounds. Fully mind-bending and gadget-less.
