This track includes the sound of me opening the matchbox and retrieving a match. Then I strike the match 3 times, on the final strike the match ignites and the flame Is audible. I recorded This using The XYH-6 microphones on the ZOOM H6 placed approx 3" From The capsules. Processing includes a High pass filter and Compression.

    Amazing work harrybates01!! Your sound is lovingly featured in the soundscape environment scoring this musical track:
    “Discovery after Dark” from the album _Travel Poems . Chapter 1 . Secret towns_
    You can stream it (and also see your credits) at https://soundcloud.com/ericpan/discovery-after-dark . You’re also featured in the credits on the official album website at https://travelpoems.com/#about, in the liner notes for the album sold at Bandcamp, as well as in the acknowledgements for all major streaming sites (Apple Music, Spotify, et al), the only caveat being that many music services do not feature extended (or often even basic!) credits in their digital user experience, even though the information has been submitted in detail to them.
    It’s important to me that you feel you’ve been given due credit for your fantastic sound curation -- so if there’s something I’ve missed feel free to contact me at eric@travelpoems.com. Thank you and hope you are well!

    Thank you, harrybates01, for investing your time and effort into not only creating this sound but also uploading it here. We used this sound on the Storytellers Telling Stories podcast, and we appreciate your hard work. Again, thank you!
