Night ambience with fire sirens recorded in a residential area in a village 70 km east of Frankfurt, Germany. Around midnight the alarm went off. Sounds recorded include three fire siren blasts, the voices of some neighbors, the churchbell of St. Epiphanias, Eschau, (0:13), a dog barking, and one neighbor, who is member of the village's voluntary fire brigade, starting his car to head off for their headquarters (1:07"). The fire burnt down a shed in a nearby village. Nobody was injured.Field-recording recorded in November 2000 with the built-in microphone of a Sony PC100. Denoised and equalized in ProTools (Free). Normalized (25%) in Peak.

    Really atmospheric. Could be used in any sort of semi-rural emergency-type soundtrack; aliens landing, imminent nuke war, toxic accident, natural disaster or shed burning down. I'm glad no one actually got hurt. It really makes me want to make a short movie, just to include this.
