It's a recording of a firework candle going off.

The candle bursts near the end of the recording, before burning out.

Recorded with Zoom H2's rear mics at 96kHz/24bit on a mic stand.

Denoised, normalized, truncated and converted to 16-bit FLAC using Audacity.

    Thank you for your amazing work unfa!! This sound of yours is lovingly featured in the soundscape environment scoring this musical track:
    “Up Jakupica” from the album _Travel Poems . Chapter 1 . Secret towns_
    You can stream it (and also see your credits) at https://soundcloud.com/ericpan/up-jakupica which is track 7 from the album. You’re also featured in the credits on the official album website at https://travelpoems.com/#about, in the liner notes for the album sold at Bandcamp, as well as in the acknowledgements for all major streaming sites (Apple Music, Spotify, et al), the only caveat being that many music services do not feature extended (or often even basic!) credits in their digital user experience, even though the information has been submitted in detail to them.
    It’s important to me that you feel you’ve been given due credit for your fantastic sound curation -- so if there’s something I’ve missed feel free to contact me at eric@travelpoems.com. Thank you and hope you are well!
