In January 2014 I spent a month traveling around Cambodia, collecting music & field recordings along the way. This release is constructed using samples & found sounds from these recordings.
I met a very inspirational man in Siem Reap that taught me more about Cambodia's troubled history, and helped me make the necessary contacts in order to set up this little fund raising project.
All sales from this release will be donated to the Landmine Disability Support :
Landmine Disability Support (LMDS) works to support disabled people. The organisation’s mission is to help disabled people integrate into the mainstream of society in a way which is appropriate and sustainable. In less industrialised countries, with a recent history of conflict, the proportion of disabled people significantly exceeds that of more industrialised countries, where the norm is in the region of 10%. In Cambodia 90% of the disabled people live in the countryside; 90% of these are numbered among the poorest of the poor. LMDS, which takes a holistic view of disability, works with these rural disabled people. The goal is to support them to become economically viable, help them develop their abilities as far as possible and encourage them to become aware of their entitlements.
My thanks to Soun Rottana at the Siem Reap War Museum, Jeremy Taylor & Amy from Bandcamp for all the help putting this together.
