So sad-sounding! You'd think the sunny-sounding Pluto chime would counter the melancholy of the Olympos chime, but instead the Pluto's effect is now transformed and not sunny at all, but like a commentator on the Olympos chimes sadness, as in a Greek tragedy play!
1. Woodstock Chimes of Pluto (tuned to a sunny-sounding pentatonic scale)
2. Woodstock Chimes of Olympos (tuned to a melancholy-sounding Ancient Greek scale)
I made this recording on 6 November 2012 at a relatively secluded spot at Sharp Tor, by the Hunter's Path, high up on the north side of the Teign Gorge, Drewsteignton, Devon, UK.
A later recording taking place, on 21 November 2012, with identical layout, except that the nearer chime in this photo is the Gregorian Chimes (looking almost identical to the Olympos chimes). The smaller chime behind is the Pluto.
The recorder was Sony PCM-M10, with Rycote Mini Windjammer furry windshield. It was set up on a Hama Mini tripod, which I regard as not just 'mini' but tiny.
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!
