Notaur var Olympus LS-11. Hljriti ber ess glgg merki a hljritarinn var hrddur vi skessuna.

In English

Many foreigners believe that giantesses are now extinct in Iceland, which is of course not true, as the writer of many childrenbooks, Herdis Egilsdottir, has proofed many times. In Reykjanesbr is a recently built cave which is a home of rather a friendly giantess. She has mostly been sleeping since she moved into the cave in 2008, snoring, and now and then farting and burping. Children like to visit her.

The recording was made on an Olympus LS-11, not very professionally as the recordist is afraid of giantesses.

This summer has up to now been sunny, cold and windy. I noticed that the wind produced some special sounds on my balkony facing southwest. The northern wind now has to go through between our hous and the new one close to the west.
A simple geer was used, Olympus-11.
The recording is in 24 bits and the download can therefore be a little slow.
Good headphones are recommended.

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, 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.
Recorded with an Olympus LS-11 24 bits, 48 kHz

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 Rde 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.

On July 14 2014 I and my wife were driving en North-west Iceland heading south towards the Gauksmri Lodge . As we had been travelling for some time we decided to take a rest in Bitrufjrur. 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.
