This strange piezo (contact-microphones) sound comes out of the deep of a river. More piezo in this pack.
I was experimenting there with my two 5cm piezo-elements mounted on tails to boost the volume and this is what I heard. I think the ticks and beeps came from cables in the river or antenna’s around. The low frequency's came from a passing barge.
It sounds mysterious mystical, very weird.
See the piezoelectric mics connected to the tailes standing in the water.

The water, this river, it is an unexplored environment where I will make more recordings.

Recorded with two 5cm piezo elements > Sony PCM D50 recorder and EQ with Audacity-software.

When you use this sound it would be nice if you spent a voluntarily donation to freesound.
YOU ALWAYS HAVE TO CREDIT/ATTRIBUTE me (klankbeeld) and freesound.org in your work if you use this sound. Do it like this: sound from http://www.freesound.org/people/klankbeeld/
Do not use an indirect link.

    i am taken to outer space - I do hope Sigourney is around to save me when the alien shows up! :)

    more? yes please...

    altho one question ---> why not creative commons 0 no attribution- I work in film and would love to use your sounds - but my clients will not agree to attribution on the end of their movies for a single sound... an embarrassing situation
