and Progress Report
I conducted a workshop at the Myanmar Field Station.
I recorded environmental sounds in Bagan and Maubin. Although Myanmar is not yet heavily motorized, there is significance to capturing the current situations
through audio and visual records in anticipation of changes in the near future.
Traffic in Yangon: Yangon city has this much traffic. Unexpectedly there are few motorcycles.
Traffic in Maubin: People in Maubin mainly use bicycles for transportation. There is very little car traffic.
