This is a wonderful evocation of the spirit of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshwara! The performers are from the China Disabled Peoples Performance Art Troupe in Hubei, and all of the dancers are deaf and mute.
I had used the Digital Clip Factory to scan from one end of a photograph to another in order to make viewing of the long murals as Bayon presentable. I also have another video made this time of the East Wall.
Doing long scans in this way is really an imaginative extension of what the software was meant for. A more usual way of employing it is to animate still photographs to make them more interesting. This is called the Ken Burns effect.
On the second day at Angkor I started taking photographs of the walls at Bayon, it was actually quite hard work to shuffle along corridors holding the camera at a steady height, trying not to bump into anyone, and not to fall over either.
Following on from yesterday’s video here are 9 recordings of traditional Cambodian mahori music. The performance is from the early 1970s but there is no information about the performers available.
We were only on site for three days during this trip, which is a very short time when trying to get around and see some of the main sites, see some new places, which I hadn’t seen before, and also get some photography done!
