A Bend in the Stream

Soundscape Recording. Blackwater, February 12th 2016.

This was recorded at a bend in a forest stream that runs through the Ornamental Drive near Blackwater on a winter’s morning in February 12th 2016. Listen for the sounds of the stream as it runs around some half-submerged logs that create gentle clunks and bumps.

A variety of microphones were used for this recording, including underwater hydrophones that I dropped into the stream, plus contact microphones that pick up the vibrations of the water on the logs.
