  2. Having bought and enjoyed “XINJIANG” lp, and then the 5 cd remix set I really would like to know where it might be possible for me to find sellers of the 101 cds mentioned above? I *think* I saw them in a shop in France but as I live in UK, going back there wouldn’t be too easy. Any idea where I couls search?
    Thanks for your time!
    Dave

  3. Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the enthusiasm. Unfortunately Laurent’s work is not very well distributed in Europe. You can get some through a French Distributor (http://www.metamkine.com/?montri=mtk.titre ). You can also contact him and get a few directly from him: kinkgong@gmail.com

  4. Hi Gonçalo – I got in touch with Laurent & have made arrangements to buy the recordings from him.
    Since I left my comment here last month I have discovered that there are a number of recordings available to listen to on Spotify now if anyone else is trying to hear the works. And there are some recordings available to buy on iTunes. Hopefully other people will discover these great recordings and the Kink Gong name might become better known!

  5. The soundscapes project reminds me of the work of Ethnomusicology, but also A. Ximm (www.quietamerican.org/vacation.html ): the One Minute Vacation colLection of user submitted audio recordings.
