by Jarra Schirris



Two early and/OAR field recording releases by Dutch sound artist Jarra Schirris are now available again for the first time in 17 years demonstrating literal "night and day" sonic differences of the same location.

Two recordings made in Taman Negara, Malaysia.


"After a 4 hour boat trip into the jungle, we walked for about 1.5 hours to reach the hide where we spent the night. As it got darker, it started to rain. This then developed into a huge tropical rain. The recording was made outside the hide, as the sun was setting. Throughout the recording, the rain became heavier and eventually subsided, after which the jungle came alive again." - Jarra


Although recorded in the same area, this recording presents an almost completely different soundscape than the one made at dusk, further illustrating the equally interesting and amazing sonic diversity in this particular region.
