MP3 of the Day: Aaron Ximm, "Idle Hands"

Aaron Ximm's work as Quiet American showcases an extreme attention to the audible environment with a massive collection of over 90 hours of field recordings available for free download under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike license. With many more unreleased recordings, these sounds follow Aaron's travels around Vietnam, Fiji, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, and Nepal.

This release sees Ximm going in a slightly different direction - an album of instrumental pieces played on the Hang, an instrument similiar to a steel drum, made from two sheets of pitched steel. The sound is ethereal and meditative, a unique and fitting addition to his cannon of recordings.
