Bila­ur kŠlir og tˇnelskur frystiskßpur - A cooler out of order and a musical freezing cabin

═ verslun Hagkaupa vi­ Ei­istorg var eitthva­ a­ einum kŠlinum.
Heimilisfrystiskßpurinn, sem er fŠddur Ý Tyrklandi er nokkru hljˇ­lßtari en framlei­ir una­sleg hljˇ­ sem mannseyra­ heyrir vart en hljˇ­ritinn nemur. Honum var stungi­ inn Ý skßpinn og lßtinn d˙sa ■ar Ý nokkrar mÝn˙tur. Kuldinn virtist ■rengja nokku­ a­ efnivi­i tŠkisins eins og ÷rlßgir smellir bera vitni um.
Hljˇ­rita­ me­ Olympus LS-11 ß 24 bitum og 48 kÝlˇri­um.

In English
It could be heard that something was wrong with one of the coolers in the Hagkaup Supermarket at Ei­istorg in Seltjarnarnes, Iceland.
On the other hand the freezing cabin at home, which is of Turkish origin,á is so quite that the human ear doesn't hear the wonderful sounds it composes. Therfore the Olympus LS-11 was place inside for several minutes. The dropping temperatures seemed to affect the recorder's housing as the small snicks confirm.

Ofvi­ri­ 14. mars - The Tempest on March 14

Enn eitt ˇve­ri­ geisa­i ß sunnanver­u landinu a­ morgni 14. Mars 2015. ┴ KeflavÝkurflugvelli var vindhra­inn um 30 m/sek kl. 10:00 og mß gera rß­ fyrir a­ hann hafi veri­ svipa­ur hÚr ß Seltjarnarnesi.

TŠkifŠri­ var nota­ og ˇsk÷pin hljˇ­ritu­ Ý stofunni ß heimili okkar sem veit mˇt su­vestri. Nota­ur var Nagra Ares BB+ hljˇ­riti ßsamt tveimur R°de NT1-A hljˇ­nemum Ý AB-uppsetningu.

Hljˇ­ritun hˇfst kl. 09:45.

Upprunalega hljˇ­riti­ er 24 bita og 48 kÝlˇri­. Ekkert hefur veri­ skori­ af lßgtÝ­ni hljˇ­ritsins, en hin dj˙pu hljˇ­, sem steinsteypt h˙s gefa jafnan frß sÚr Ý ofvi­ri, heyr­ust vel og ■vÝ ˇe­lilegt a­ breyta ■eim. Eindregi­ er mŠlt me­ gˇ­um heyrnartˇlum.

In English

Yet another tempest raged in Southwest Iceland in the morning of March 14 ths year. The wind speed was about 30 m/sek.

A recording was made in our living room facing south-west.

A Nagra Ares BB+ was used together with 2 R°de NT1-A microphones in an AB-setup. The original recording is in 48 kHz and 24 bits.

The lower frequencies have not been cut off. Therefore the deep rumbling sounds of the hous are easily heard. We heard them ourselves and therefor I thought it unnecessary to edit the sound.

The recording starts at 09:45.

Good headphones are recommended.

Hann haf­i eitt sinn haft samband vi­ mig ß pˇstlista ßhugahljˇ­ritara og ˇska­ eftir a­ fß a­ nřta sÚr hljˇ­rit af hljˇ­blogginu.

N˙ vildi hann fß vi­tal. ╔g taldi netsambandi­ varla uppfylla gŠ­i fyrir

Skype. Spur­i hann mig ■ß hvort Úg vŠri ekki me­ hljˇ­rita me­fer­is. ╔g skyldi ■ß hljˇ­rita allt saman ß me­an ß samtalilnu stŠ­i, senda sÚr sÝ­an hljˇ­skrßna og hann kŠmi ■vÝ svo saman.

╔g haf­i heyrt af ■essari a­fer­ og fannst h˙n athyglisver­, en aldrei reynt hana sjßlfur. Afraksturinn fylgir hÚr. Teki­ skal fram a­ Úg var ■essu algerlega ˇvi­b˙inn.

╔g sendi honum hljˇ­riti­ um lei­ og Úg komst Ý sŠmilegt netsamband.

Nota­ur var Olympus LS-11 hljˇ­riti.

On July 14 2014 I and my wife were driving en North-west Iceland heading south towards the Gauksmřri Lodge . As we had been travelling for some time we decided to take a rest in Bitrufj÷r­ur. We went to a side road and turned off tghe engine.Shortly afterwards the phone played The East is read and when I answered a producer from PRI

In Boston, David Leveille, was on the phone. I had caught his attention on a post list and he had contacted me earlier regarding some of my recordings. Now he wanted to make a Skype interview. As I was a little reluctant, due to the fact that the quality might not be satisfying, he asked if I did have a recorder with me. It would be possible to have the interview. I just needed to have my phone in on hand and the recorder in the other palm. I would record the whole conversation and my voice would later on be mixed together with his voice. As I had heard of this methode before and never used it in my broadcast work, I was eager to try it. The result is here below.

The interview is marked by the fact that I was not quite prepared. But the sound environment is quite interesting.

Recorded with an Olympus LS-11.

The interview was later broadcast on August 26 2014.

Vindur blŠs um vetrarnßtt - The Wind in the Winter Night

A­ kv÷ldi 6. desember 2014 kom Úg fyrir tveimur Sennheiser ME-62 hljˇ­nemum utan vi­ svalirnar ß 3. hŠ­ a­ Tjarnarbˇli 14. Voru ■eir Ý AB-uppsetningu me­ 30 cm bili og ■aktir lo­feldi frß rycote.

Ef grannt er eftir hlusta­ heyrist vindurinn ■yrla upp snjˇkornum, ßlftir flj˙ga hjß lengst Ý vestri og alls kyns skr÷lt Ý nřbyggingunni.

IN ENGLISH

In the evening on December 6 2014 I placed 2 Sennheiser ME-62 mics outside the balcon on our flat in Seltjarnarnes, Iceland, in an AB-setup with 30 mm spacing. They were covered with a fur from Rycote.

At 4:25 in the morning the wind had started blowing from the north-east. Instead of the deep sound of the ocean som 1 km away the sound of a fan in a nearby house under construction was overwhelming.

If the listener uses all his/her attention the wind can be heard whirling some snowflakes around and swans flying to the south in the far west. All kinds of sounds from the building is also here and there.

Good headphones are strongly recommended.

Ofvi­ri Ý desember - A Tempest in December

In English

In the evening of December 1, 2014, we had a tempest from southwest in Southern Iceland. At Keflavik Airport the strongest blasts were at least 30 m/sec (108 km per hour). The weather is quite similar where I am living at Seltjarnarnes.

I placed 2 R°de NT1-A microphones in an AB-array with 30 cm spacing in the livingroom aproximately 2 m from the windows. It is quite interesting to sense the deep roaring of the house as an accompaniment to the wind, pressing through and some objects outside trying to leave the balcony. This recording describes what it is like staying alone at home as the tempest is raging outside.

Good headphones are strongly recommended.

R÷krßsin - vel heppna­ ˙tvarpsleikrit

┌tvarpsleikh˙si­ frumflutti leikriti­ R÷krßsina eftir Ingibj÷rgu Magnadˇttur. Me­ a­alhlutverkin fˇru ■au Erlingur GÝslason og Kristbj÷rg Kjeld. Tˇnlist samdi KristÝn Anna Valtřsdˇttir og Harpa Arnardˇttir var leikstjˇri.

Leikriti­ er margslungi­ snilldarverk um ÷ldru­ hjˇn sem starfrŠkja ˙tvarpsst÷­ ß heimili sÝnu. Brug­i­ er upp svipmynd af hjˇnunum og hlustendur fß a­ heyra hvernig ■au li­sinna hlustendum sÝnum. Einnig breg­a ■au ß leik og samfarir g÷mlu hjˇnanna Ý beinni ˙tsendingu voru mj÷g sannfŠrandi.

TŠknivinnslan var innt af hendi af mikilli prř­i, enda undir stjˇrn Einars Sigur­ssonar.

Hlusta­ var ß leikriti­ Ý vefvarpi RÝkis˙tvarpsins og valinn kosturinn Net˙tv÷rp. ┌tsendingin ß netinu var afleit. Svo miki­ er hljˇ­i­ ■jappa­ a­ řmsir aukadˇnar fylgja me­ tˇnlistinni og s-hljˇ­in ver­a hßlfgert hviss. Nřmi­ladeild RÝkis˙tvarpsins hlřtur a­ gera grein fyrir ■essum l÷ku hljˇ­gŠ­um. Breska ˙tvarpi­ BBC sendir ˙t Ý miklum hljˇ­gŠ­um og hi­ sama ß vi­ um fj÷lda tˇnlistarst÷­va sem eru ß netinu.

Hlustendum til frˇ­leiks fylgir hljˇ­sřni.
