Sometimes it is just luck and that I could record this sound was luck! We always sleep at a park and sleep spot or so-called “Michi-no-Eki” in Japan!
These parking rest stops are super clean, free of charge and if you are not leaving before 9 AM they have always farmers markets. By the way, I already recorded new toilet flush sounds that will be up in my “Toilet Flush Around The World” album very soon including from this parking stations.
I was packing up the camper car around 7 am and I listen to some drum music in the background and my first thought was “Who has the radio so loud”?
It was raining and freezing cold but I was curious where this sound came from. I grabbed my recorder and with only a t-shirt on I run to the other site of the street and saw a long line with many retired men and women.
I passed the line and realized they play in the shop. In China, Taiwan or Vietnam, for example, they have dragons if a new shop opens and in Japan they use drums?
An older lady came up to me and told me the shop has 10th years anniversary and that is why they play!
So lucky I went here so I could record almost four minutes of the drum sound what is called in Japan “Taiko” or “Wadaiko” and the drumsticks are called Bachi if my research was correct!
I placed the recorder right in front of the musician and alone we communicate with eye contact and smiling. They know I record and I know they allowed it so that’s cool! After the play, everybody was so nice and excited to talk to me!
The best is the “broken megaphone” sound that I recorded what I am going to publish separately.
I had no time for a big setup or something and recorded the sound only with the XY from the Zoom H6!
The bitrate is 96/24!
The length is 3:30 minutes!
I think it sounds great so I hope you enjoy the sound and you can use it for some amazing projects!
Japan is very cosmopolitan – it values its origins, but a world view hovers above this narrow perspective. The interest of the Japanese in their folk culture is transcendental. – F. Sionil Jose
