Joyful airy rustic rattling and scuttling of bamboo wind chimes, with two bright and upbeat-sounding metal chimes, high up in the Teign Gorge, Drewsteignton, Devon, UK.
1. Woodstock Chimes of Pluto (tuned to a sunny-sounding pentatonic scale)
2. Woodstock Gregorian Chimes (tenor) (tuned to a bright-sounding Gregorian chant scale)
3. Bamboo chimes, large and small set (rather indeterminate tuning, with a touch of whole-tone scale — bought cheaply at local store)
I made this recording on 21 November 2012 in a secluded position at Sharp Tor, by the Hunter's Path, high up on north side of the Teign Gorge, Drewsteignton, Devon, UK.
Once you've listened to this, just listen to the two following uploads here, with their jaw-dropping transformation of this recording in my Nature-Symphonies 9 and 9a!
A previous recording in this session taking place, using the bamboo and Pluto (metal) chimes; the small bamboo chimes are difficult to see, just behind and lower than the Pluto (metal) chimes, and its tubes are black to confuse us all. Now try to spot the recorder, on its tiny tripod (with black furry windshield)…!
The recorder was Sony PCM-M10, with Rycote Mini Windjammer. It was set up on a Hama Mini tripod, which I regard as not just 'mini' but tiny. Although I fairly quickly learned subsequently to avoid having recorders so close to the ground (distorts the frequency spectrum and tends to overemphasize lower parts of the frequency range), actually in this situation it was necessary to have the recorder really low down, where the wind was much lighter.
Post-recording processing was to apply EQ in Audacity to correct for the muffling effect of the windshield — and then more recently stereo widening / sharpening-up using the VST plugin A1 Stereo Control (160% widening).
Please remember to give this recording a rating — Thank you!
