Sound Bum CD “Traveling with Sounds 2″

Sound Bum CD-02(2007)

Our second CD produced in collaboration with Sound Bum contains recordings of travels from nine sound journeys made since we completed our first CD in 2002.

A street performance in Senegal, a train chugging its way through central India, birds of Australia, distant thunder: a selection of the sounds we never tire of hearing, and would like to share with you.
Enjoy the passing scenes from these journeys…with your ears.

Without our creating a thing, the world is already wonderful this we find ourselves thinking again and again and again.
