The Quiet American

The producer said the goal of “The Quiet American” was to hear the sounds that the world makes. He also says that the Quiet American is the manipulation of sounds he hears and records. I think that this idea is very interesting because no one really pays attention to the sounds of the world. Listening to his recordings makes you really appreciate the everyday sounds of the world. I listened to Homeward, Children, and Ha Long Dusk. The Homeward recording reminded me of a scary movie when someone is walking in the woods by themselves. The Children recording reminded me of when I’m walking home because I live by an elementary school. The Ha Long Dusk reminded me of being on the beach at night just suiting there.
