Recording Malaysia Night Market sound effects at the Farlim Night Market in Penang
This is officially our first sound library from Malaysia and country number 18 on this sound recording adventure. We have lived in Penang for 3 weeks in 2016 and really loved it. That was the main reason for us to come back.
About the sound effects of the Malaysia Night Market
It was a beautiful Wednesday evening and I decided to record night market sounds. Penang has several night markets, but each one is in a different location on different days.
This Wednesday evening market is called the Farlim Night Market and is located on Medan Angsana Road.
It’s about 15 minutes by scooter from Georgetown and on the way there, I could already smell the various spices and foods in the air.
Penang is one of the best food destinations in the world, and if you’ve ever dined here it will be difficult to find good tasting food anywhere else in the world.
Before unpacking my gear, I wanted to get a feel for the area and the general mood. I’m doing this for security reasons.
I just walk around trying to find good recording areas that aren’t always hidden, but also have conversations or eye contact with the food stall owners. A quick chat or a smile is enough and I don’t feel alone anymore. This kind of connection makes me feel protected.
After walking around for about 25 minutes I could already tell that this is a very nice local and safe market. I didn’t feel uncomfortable getting my gear ready. Overall, Penang is a very safe area.
A few minutes later, I realized that each food stall had its own power generator and I could hear them everywhere.
For example, I’ve never seen anything like that at markets in Thailand or Vietnam.
In these countries, they use street lights or city electricity. This is an interesting fact and makes these recordings very unique.
In this market sound library, you can listen to a vendor squeezing sugar cane into juice with an very old machine that is also connected to a power generator.
Many people go for walks and talk mainly in Mandarin. I stopped next to two food stalls and got an amazing sizzle sound effect from the wok.
This wok was huge and you can hear the cook turn on the gas to keep the wok lit up. He also turns the food several times.
I had a lot of fun recording at this night market and got great ambience and sound effects. You can find more sounds from Malaysia on the Malaysia Sound Library Category page and many more on my Bandcamp account.
