about

BÁI YǍN (pronounced "buy yawn") was recorded from 2006 - 2007 in jiangxi, ganzhou, china. it is heavily influenced by chinese traditional, chinese modern pop, american southern hip hop, american folk & pop music, noise, techno, clubbing in china, heavy metal, grind, and the sounds and sights of asia. it is a double album in cd format, and in digital format is divided into two parts like a movie with intermission.

it features field recordings from all over china, and personal home recordings of conversations with friends and lovers i did using my digital camera and cell phone. it was recorded on the computer that was provided for me by the university i was teaching english at using a 2 dollar microphone, and digital software; fruity loops, and cubase.

before i came back to the states it was unfinished, due to the fact that i had to steal the hard drive on my computer from the university, and a hard drive crash back here in the states. i painstakingly pieced my intended vision back together this year after 3 years of tinkering with the order, and sifting through the archives of my recordings. it's taken me 4 years to complete this album.
