The myNoise Sampling Sessions' Photo Album

A sampling session around Kyoto, recording traditional sounds from Japan. I was mainly interested in recording atmosphere around shrines and temples. Not many pictures were taken, as I often attended religious ceremonies and wanted to keep as respectful as possible.

Thank you!

Sampling sessions abroad are only possible because of the generosity of the people making donations to this website. May those contributors be assured of my deepest gratitude! If you would like to foster the recording of new sounds, please support or keep supporting my work. Stéphane
