Recording Hammer and Picking Sounds in Vietnam
While living in Hoi An, Vietnam, we frequently drove to Danang. This coastal city is known for its fine art stone carving and when coming from Hoi An we’d pass hundreds of statues made of stone.
I remember driving in the morning alone to Da Nang and I saw a man sitting on a huge dirty stone sign with a pick and a hammer in his hands. However, at this time he didn’t get my full attention. Since I was on a mission to record around the city I wanted to make my way to the center.
That day I spent nearly 8 hours in Da Nang and on my way back he was still at that sign picking away. Now I was laser-focused on this sound so I turned around with my motorbike stopped and walked over to him with my recorder. I asked him if I could record these sounds and he smiled and it was okay for him.
While I was recording, I was so moved and couldn’t believe it somebody has to clean a billboard from the dirt with a hammer and a pick. You could use a high water compressor and you’d be done in a few minutes.
After a few minutes, I packed my recorder and said
“Cám ơn” and “Hẹn gặp lại” for “Thank you” and “Goodbye.” I drove home thinking about this situation because these recordings are not just “run and gun” no they come with a lot of emotion and empathy for these hard-working people. Now when I listen to these sound recordings it brings back these memories.
