Today I was walking along Kalemegdan park, one of the most beautiful parks in Belgrade, Serbia, and since the weather was very nice, a bunch of kids went out with their parents to play football (soccer:) It took me a good two hours of sitting and trying to capture their sound in the best possible way, since they are totally hectic, running around, making sudden noises, a ball even hit me a couple of times...anyhow, it was so sweet. Believe me, recording kids at play is not EASY AT ALL! :D These kids that you can hear in this sample are playing soccer on the imaginary field, and, of course, they have imaginary goals. :) First off, they are pretty quiet, but somewhere in the middle of the sample they start fighting if one of them actually 'scored' or not :) Hence, the loud shouting, screaming and yelling (even I, whose mother tongue is Serbian couldn't realize what they are saying:) In the end, they are like all cool and what not and they all end their game peacefully. Recorded with Zoom H4n. Recorded with Zoom H4n. Please rate, comment and share. In case you download some of my sounds and use them in your audiovisual artwork, the only thing I ask from you is to let me know where and how they ended up. It would be a pleasure. Please feel free to send me a private message if you have any questions or suggestions. I really try to keep an open mind for everything. Thank you. Peace. Matt
