photo of fish market wares

April 25th, 2007
Across from our hotel in Xi’an was a fish market: eel, flounder, toads, and jellyfish were among many that were unknown to us.  The highlight of this recording for me was a boy of about 6 or 7 who paused in his shrimp de-veining duties (or whatever his family was doing) and said “hello”.  The sound that comes out of his mouth sounded like a musical note, or the ploink of dripping water.  Captured with DPA 4060 lavaliere mics into the SD 744t.  Use headphones for best effect.
