Having spent the last 10 weeks getting up at very unsociable hours to make my recordings, I’ve decided to reconsider the position my recorder since it might be too close to the stream. Up until now there haven’t been many extraneous noises but there was a strong wind last night which I hoped would add some detail to the soundscape. Unfortunately, it seems to be drowned on the sound of the stream so I may have to start again.. I’ll check it on better speakers first..
Tonight, (3.30 am this morning) I was visited by an owl. Nice to get a bit of detail in an otherwise quite barren winter soundscape. owlinwoods2
This is a project I started in at midnight on New year’s eve 2014. I make a recording in the same spot in some woods near to where I live, each week for a few minutes. Each week, the time I make this recording advances by about 27 minutes. I will stitch each recording end to end. The final result will be a recording of the whole year in condensed form and the recording of a day in compressed time form. A wheel within a wheel..
