field recordings from Bokeo nature reserve, Northern Laos

Here are some sounds that I recorded on a trip to the bokeo nature reserve in northern Laos. These were made using a Rhode NT4 stereo mic, an Apogee Duet audio interface and an Apple Macbook running Ableton Live 7.

Everything had to be carried into the forest in one back pack. This setup was designed to be as light and portable as possible because the terrain is extremely mountainous.

Battery life was pretty limited, with about two hours of record time.
