Celestial falcon calls in Kyrgyzstan

We’re very pleased to be able to add Kyrgzystan as the 66th country on the Cities and Memory sound map today, with a recording by Mark Wilden from the Tash Rabat yurt camp, located just 20 miles from the border with China.

Regular contributor Warren Daly came up with a beautiful reimagined piece from the field recording.

He writes: “I imagined the vast open spaces at the foothills of the celestial Tian Shan mountain range.
The reverberations of falcon calls emphasise the expanse of the wilderness.”
