Words, sounds and pictures by Kate Carr

Overheard in Doi Saket – out on 3Leaves now.

It has been quite a while since I’ve been in Thailand, and I must admit living in Belfast makes the country feel very far away, but I’ve turned all the recordings I took over there into an album called Overheard in Doi Saket, which the 3Leaves label based in Hungary have very kindly released for me.
The album really is all about listening in a new place, stabs of music through the undergrowth, guitar caught between the roar of scooter traffic, insects, the fish of the dam, dogs, birds and of course the sounds of people. It is based a lot more on field recordings that my other releases, or perhaps it is more accurate to say it has fewer instrumental sounds, and I’m sure I will always like it because it will remind me of a very special place, and a pretty full on time just before I packed up everything and moved from Australia to Belfast.

You can get a copy of it here
And an excerpt from the album is below:

While I was in Thailand I also made a sound map of Doi Saket, which is something of an accompaniment to this release, which can be found here: http://boxc.net/KC/lostinds.html
