In winter 2009 I went to Hanoi to capture field recordings for a composition entitled 'Intersection'. I also took a lot of photos in and around Hanoi. These photos illustrate the hectic noise of the daily city life, but there are also long time exposures taken at night, shots taken in nature or details, that tell a different story; a more introverted, more quiet Vietnam.
The sounds I was able to record in Hanoi very much match what the images suggest: All kinds of traffic noises, cars, trains, motor cycles, bicycles, church bells, construction sites, electrical hum, but also more distant steady states, drones, sounds that slowly transform over time.
