A multi-disciplinary journey in music, sound, and field recording.

With Fronds Like These…

Posted: June 4th, 2023 | Author: | Filed under: field recording, found sound objects

The same winter storms that I mentioned in my last post also brought down a ton of fronds off the King Palm (Archontophoenix alexandrae) in our front yard. One can never have enough foliage source recordings, so… (the video below is just camera audio, not the Sennheiser MKH 50+30 mid-side rig I used to do the recording)

Field recording greatly improves one’s motivation to do yard work!

Here is a designed vegetation movement or destruction sound effect made from the material I recorded in this session. Soundcloud’s MP3 compression won’t be kind to this sort of material, but oh well!
