tiny synthesizers

I knew that I was behind a bit on updates, but I had no idea that a month has passed since I last posted anything. I’ll write some more about my experiences later, but in the meantime here’s some more audio from the field. It’s not for everyone, but if you like ambient sounds and music, you’ll dig this. Behind the house of Jenn’s mom is a little lake and plenty of trees. As I sat in her yard working in the shade, the sound of cicadas buzzed in the space above me. I never noticed how the dynamic the sound is, the volume faded up and down in little pockets moving all around the trees. Someone somewhere needs to set up multiple mics and catch this in 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound. This is a long one at about 11 minutes. It was great background music for writing code. Recorded July 11th, 2010.
