I’ve always been interested in field recording – that is, the recording of everyday sounds in their natural surroundings. My best friend dabbles in it, and there is a fantastic Japanese sound blog called World Listener which I have just started following. I don’t own a high quality mic myself, but while shooting some simple video the other day in Marrakech I realised just how much sound was all around me. Marrakech is an intense place: especially in terms of sound and smell. There’s no quiet here. People are shouting, haggling, squabbling 24/7 – and while this may seem attractive to many in search of an exotic destination, it was all a bit too much for me. Here is the sound of Marrakech.
