Recording Monk Chant Sounds In Vietnam
I had the chance and the honor to record these incredible monk chanting sounds in one of the Pagodas in Hoi An. I went a little bit to early and helped one lady to place the carpets on the floor for the chanting session. I was kind and like always, very friendly and this attitude can open doors
30 minutes later, the pagoda was already filled with a least hundred people and I felt like everybody knew me already.

I walked everywhere around to find a good recording position and the Lama ( I hope that is correct) came up to me and I presented him my recorder and told him that I would love to record the ceremony.
He approved it and started smiling. He showed me another room where I could sit record. After the ceremony one of his assistants gave me later a bracelet as present.
That was really nice. But before that imagine praying monks, nuns, visitors and me in the middle with the recorder.
The ceremony started around 6:30 pm and went for about one hour. Listen to the “gong” and the very impressive “BOOM” sound in the background right in the beginning. (Media Player Is On The Bottom)
