Since the end of the 90s, Laurent Jeanneau has been recording the music of mostly endangered minorities of South East Asia. Alongside his relentless pursue of remote exotic and unpublished musical traditions, he also started creating electronic versions by combining raw recordings with natural sounds, archive material and electronically treated sounds.
For Voices, Laurent based his alternate re-versions around the extensive voice recordings he made on location in the southern regions of Yunnan and Guizhou in China as well as in Sapa, North Vietnam and Phongsaly, Northern Laos.
The compositions contain unedited acoustic recordings, computer modified parts, sound collages and acoustic recordings of people and instruments. All tracks were recorded on location and re-arranged by Laurent Jeanneau in Dali, China.

''Voices" is both a special aural document and one of considerable compositional talents. Truly a one of a kind recording.'' - Ryan Potts, Experimedia
''Immersive and deeply illusory, ambiguous experience, the kind which we absolutely thrive off up here, hence strong recommendation to those listeners who don't like it black or white, but want to hear strange, new colours.'' Boomkat
