The two latest entries from the quietamerican.org website’s One-Minute Vacation project, in which volunteers submit field recordings from around the world: June 6 brought one of the finest entries so far this year, one of those taped moments that sound as if they’d been consciously composed, as the jitter of manual typewriters lend texture and rhythm to the street noise of Calcutta; May 30 gives a glimpse into ritual Tibet, courtesy of chanting nuns and hand percussion (submitted by Quiet American’s curator, Aaron Ximm).
