SAMOA FIELD RECORDING TRIP 1

Talofa! So far I’ve been in Samoa for five days, recorded 84GB of audio, shot 307 photos, and have a LOT of stories to tell! But some photos will have to suffice for now…

This is why I always sit in the window seat

Recording EXT from INT – at night recorded some flying foxes/bats!

Moody beach – first few days were grey & rainy but humid & hot!

Will write more about this photo later – shot some video getting there, it was a 20minute trek through dense bush… Got to this shelter literally a minute before a torrential downpour (which is why we went there – it features in the film) Three minutes later & we would have got drenched!

Recording curfew at Manunu Village – the families singing hymns was so beautiful, especially with mics 20m apart! One of the older chiefs of the village came and sat beside me while we recorded. I’ll never forget the look on his face as he listened…..

Recording coconut splitting & husking

Fish for lunch!

Beautiful sunny Sunday at Saleapaga Beach

Bittersweet – across the road from this beach are the many ruins of houses & lives destroyed by the Tsunami

    Beautiful. If it sounds as good as it looks you will be heading home with some fantastic material for your compositions.

    Beautiful shots, amazing places! Can only imagine the sounds and the pure beauty of this place at the end of the world (from Rome is a loooong journey…). Have a great time!

    What happened to the little man you put in your pictures? :-(

      j/k. I like the photo you took from the plane. Looks like you’re having a blast. Please bring back some “palm fronds clattering in the wind like dried skeletal fingers” – I had to create that sound for an audiobook a while ago and it took forever. Wish I had a real recording of it.

    Wow. Just wow, I’m so jealous.

    Those last few shots of the beach could make anyone jealous.
