I first discovered this site through a death in the family. U-Chyan the rabbit passed on and was cremated in the Buddhist fashion at a pet crematorium near here in the foothills surrounding Sapporo. Whilst we awaited for his reduction to ashes I noticed the superabundance of insect life surrounding the site and determined to return and capture some of the intricate sound tapestry enveloping us. I expect I will return again next year by which time some of U-Chyans' carbon will have been incorporated into the exoskeletons of the current generation insect musicians.

16. Doug Haire - Kumbha Mela At Sundown, Allahbad, Northern India
This recording was made during the Kumbha Mela in Allahabad, India in January 2001. 45 million Hindu made the pilgrimage to the banks of the ganges river at this highly auspicious site. What we are hearing is a typical evening ambiance in this temporary city. The night is cold and shrouded in fog and wood smoke. As I move down nameless streets the air is saturated with PA systems from countless camps. Colored lights and wood fires light the way. A sense of peace floats over this chaos.
