"Freeform released so far on labels like: Warp, Skam, Worm Interface and Law & Auder. Audio-Tourism (Vietnam/China) is the follow-up to Freeform's acclaimed album Green Park. Going further into the crossover in between organic/harmonic acoustic sounds and the machines & additional unique recordings made during a 3 months journey in China, Vietnam and Hong Kong. But the best thing is to let Simon Pyke talk about it: 'As 'Tourists' the idea was to source snapshots of life. sounds of the lashing monsoon, the serenity of Lugu Lake, the intense song of cicadas and the chatter of Saigon. Armed with a minidisk, pair of 'in ear' microphones, radio, portable sampler and camera every experience, however small and quiet, was recorded. Collecting sounds and instruments unique to the environment was the chrysalis for a spontaneous musical dialogue. A conversation between Western and newly acquired Asian influence. This album is the result of two months exploring the backstreets of Vietnam and the Yunnan province, China as Audio Tourists'."
