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)
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.
This recording taking place, using the Gregorian chimes (nearer) and Pluto chimes (further).
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, and actually I was rather over-exposing it to the wind just by perching it in the slightly raised position you see in the photo above.
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!
