    Beautiful piece.

    I used this piece as ambience for my graphical installment, "meadow", visible here:

    Ok, it has been rerecorded. We couldn't get the bird to be quiet, but it was recorded with an excellent microphone and preamp, DPA precision condenser microphone ($3000 mic!). The MP3's have the full recording and the WAV files are excerpts of these MP3. Enjoy!

    I also would love for you to re-record these beautiful sounding chimes again. If you could minimize the background sound that would fabulous. They sound so pure. Personally the longer the file the better. I plan on using the file for a meditation tune I will make.
    Thanks for sharing your chimes! Bob

    Hi, Paul.
    I'm excited to know that you will record that wonderful sound again. I also use MiniDisk recorder and plug-in-power stereo microphone for recording. Just setting recording mode from "AUTO" to "MANUAL" brings natural feeling to the sound. If circumstances permit, using mic-pre and line imput of MiniDisk recorder is the best, I think. (That should sound 'heaven.')
    Speaking of the length of the sound, I like it to be around one minute of non-compressed waves. If you take it for a kind of a 'music', long length is understandable enough. Fading is of your preference. Whichever it be, we listners respect the way creator does.
    I hope you will enjoy recording the sound !
