I've had a weird week, and what I got from the postman last morning made it all more weirder. It's a CD from Japan. But first things first...
My younger brother currently resides in Japan. He told me three weeks ago that he has met a guy from spain who also makes music, and uses Samplitude. Since my brother told me, this guy Alvaro, would also "run around with a field recorder, and record everything in Japan he get's his hands on", I asked for a mail-adress, because lately I do the exact same (run around and record everything I can lay ears on). So we had a short chat via mail. I tried my best to write in spanish, at least the few things I remember from school. Unfortuntely that a) isn't much, and is not specific in the means of audio. I told him that I look for every kind of mono recordings I can get. In retrospective, I should have been more specific or write in english.
To make a long story short: Yesterday I got mail from Japan, containing a CD with about two hundred mp3 tracks with strange sounds, obviously all from: monkeys. Each and every track.
I told a friend and he revisited my mail I wrote to Alvaro. He than told me that "mono recordings" is not properly translated with "grabacion de mono" (which actually is not correct by means of grammar and vocabulary), since "mono" in spanish means "monkey". Now I'm a bit wiser - but still don't know how to translate "mono recordings" into spanish. And on the other side of the world is a guy who will still in ten years remember that "strange dude from germany with a passion for monkeys".
