Winter suburban ambience.
Last day 10cm snow fell. Last night it was freezing -5c. On this calm morning people came out of here apartment to clean there car from the snow that get stuck.

What you hear;
general: ice water dripping down on aluminium sunscreens cause the sun melts the snow on the balcony. People scraping ice from the cars windows. Cars driving over the ice road made of bumpy hard ice. Sometime the wheels spin. More and more birds calls later on.
12.36-17.00 Mother and child having fun sledging in the snow on the grass. (25m away)
46.18-52.45 Far (on 4km), blown about, cathedral church-bells call for Holy Mass.
68.20-80.40 Street/side-walk snow-shovelling, hacking and sweeping

Gear chain: Rode NT4 XY (fore sides left and right) and a Rode NTG-1 shotgun (for mid-signal) in Rode Blimp > Sound Devices 302 (coder for MS-recording >Tascam dr-100 Mk2.
This strange MS-setup is developed by me to make it possible to make wide stereo recordings on a distance.
This is a MS (mid-side)-recording is encoded in STEREO Left-Right, so you can encode it to MONO without losing quality of sound.

This is a modern high quality -q10 (1500kbps) OGG Vobis compression file (48000Hz/16bit). The quality is almost as good as the 48/24-WAV original file. You can easily use this file in HD-film and HIFI music-tracks. The sound-quality is, after this compression technique is still very high. The file size reduction is about 75% of the 2304kbps WAV-track
