Lost In Sound

A pilgrimage of sounds in Southeast Asia – Japan

“This research is aiming to study about soundscapes in Southeast Asia and Japan.  During almost five months of this research (from January 5th – May 31st, 2019), I have recorded many sounds in Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan. A pilgrimage of sounds, starting from traffic, market, rituals and religious activities, street vendor, children sounds, etc. Then, based on the selected recording, I analyze and write about soundscape as a cultural narratives – an etnography of sounds. I propound this research as an alternative way of ‘seeing’ (listening to) Southeast Asia and Japan nowadays. Through this study, I strongly feel that soundscape is a reflection of our reality, our life and our culture nowadays. Then, people could listen and ‘see’ each other by sounds around them. This research is supported by The Japan Foundation Asia Center Fellowship 2019”.
