It’s been awhile but the wait has been worth it!
Available from 4 December on BitPulse Records is the latest TWSC release…
Street Sounds of Jakarta
These are the sounds of Jakarta’s streets from late afternoon to round midnight. Hear the sounds of otak-otak sellers in the back alleys of Chinatown, of ice cream vendors and roving street musicians, of the evening call to prayer and children’s choruses, of the clack of pushcarts to the crickets and transistor radios of midnight in the urban kampongs.
Recorded over a one-year period on hand-held devices, every sound on this album was recorded live in Jakarta then mixed into collages. No special effects or sound banks were used—the result is an experience like no other: an aural random walk through the city as it pulses to its own rhythms.
Keep tuned for more details on the upcoming release!!!
