For anyone interested in sound and sound recordings
It's already October, and the fall is on its way to Denmark once again. My Filsø recording project is still young, and up till now i've only been out there a handful of times. The spot i've found is nice though. Trees in the back, and a nice open terrain in the front. For the past three weeks it's been raining every day, all day long, so recording have been a little hard. Although the trees shelter a little from the rain, i'm not a big fan of recording in the middle of a minor shower. So this Tuesday when i got home from work, i couldn't let the opportunity pass. The clouds were far away, the wind was not at all a problem, and it was still not anywhere near getting dark. Lovely! I fetched my car and bike (there's a place to park near the lake, but it's a very long walk) and of course mics and recorder, and i was on my way once again.
On the way out there, the rain were a bit closer than i first expected, but i was fixed on getting this recording done. There's no way of knowing when i'll have the chance again. This weather thing is not so easy to predict, even if you ask the Danish meteorological institute. They have been known to stumble and fall, even with their hi-tech equipment and all.... so i was on my way!
Getting on my bike proved easier said than done. The whole muddy road to the recording spot, was something i could have presented to an APV driver, and he'd be happy about it. To say the least, this was hard terrain for once. Long story short, i got there, set up my gear and started the recording.... yay!
Of course the rain wouldn't stay away, and as soon as i leaft my gear, to get a better look at the ever growing filsø lake, it began raining again. I decided that the trees would be sheltering just enough to let me continue out to the lake, not panicking and running back to get the gear back into my rucksack. Once i got to the lake, i must admit that three weeks of continuous rain had given the lake a new proportion. It was really growing rapidly now. I even took a picture of it again, but clouds really tend to make a photo more dark:
The recording proved to be quite different than i'd thought. A very silent wildlife, almost not present. Well take a listen for your self:
