Bivouac Recording is a field recording label and location recording services company based in Shanghai, Chin
Growing Up With Shanghai is an artistic sound project that documents the stories of local Shanghainese young adults. Each 'story' is recorded on location and the participants speak Shanghainese to complete the 'image' of the Shanghai soundscape. The stories unravel the static urban facades revealing a beautiful and dynamic city as alive as its people, together changing its culture and identity. The city tells its stories through the voices of its people.
Each 'story' is as delicate as its memories and a book of English and Chinese translations, Shanghai character transcription, map, and film photographs are taken to provide a complete experience of the locations.
This project is for both visitors and locals alike as a way to establish a deeper connection with Shanghai through the lives and experience of others.
