Standing in the spring field, farmland, 250m from a city. Sometimes people walk around close.
The traffic and city noise is overwhelming the song of the birds. Hammering, cars, trucks and an professional lawnmower in the city. After seven minutes carillon plays I nice song.

Useful as general noise track under film.

This is recorded in the pasture adjacent to the city of '-Hertogenbosch in the Netherlands. The distance from me in the field to the down-town cathedral of Saint John (Sint Jan) is only 400m. The distance between the beginning of down-town and the pasture is not more than the thickness of the old city wall, 1 meter.

Btw; The carillon is played by Joost van Balkom, the city-carilloneur.
You can look and listen to his play at this LINK. If he obviously plays?
Live playing is between 11.30-12.30 every Wednesday of the year.

Recorded: April 8th 2015, between 11.38-12.57
