January 23, 2002: quiet american

Quiet American is the manipulation of sounds I [er, not me, but him -ns] hear and record. The project began as I grappled with what it meant to be a tourist in another culture. It continues as I grapple with what it means to be a tourist in my own. The work on this site is not a replacement for travel. But if you are willing to listen, you may be transported.
