Silent places can still be found quite close to the Reykjavik area.

On August 21 2017 I and my wife went to the lake Kleifarvatn south of Reykjavik (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kleifarvatn).

The small gurgling waves when playing with the shore are quite different from the sea-waves.

Please enjoy this recording.

Recorded with Zoom H6 (attached MS-microphone).

Flat surface is always a challenge for the water to drip through especially if it is made of concrete.
My attention was drown to the fact that the dripping through the balkony above an appartment produced a sharp, beeting sound. I went there for a recording.
Recorded on an Olympus LS-11 with a R°de NT-4 microphone.
Good headphones are recommended.
The file is recorded in 24 bits 48 kHz and takes around 10-15 seconds to download.

In English

This summer has been very weat in southern Iceland. But fortunately it has been some rain in other parts of the country.

At Kirkjubˇl in SteingrÝmsfj÷r­ur near HˇlmavÝk at Northwest-Iceland, there were at least 4 kinds of weather in the night before July 14: calm, strong breeze, a little rain and heavy rain.

This short recording was made just before 8 in the morning. 2 Sennheiser ME 62 were used covered with a Rycode furcode. A Nagra Ares BB+ was used.

Headphones are recommended as well as a waterproof jacket.

Brjßla­ur bŠjarlŠkur - A crazy creek

BŠjarlŠkurinn ß Skjaldf÷nn til alls vÝs. Ljˇsmynd: ElÝn ┴rnadˇttir

Sjßlfsagt ver­ur ■etta kalla­ Rigningarsumari­ mikla. VÝ­a hafa or­i­ skemmdir af v÷ldum vatnagangs.

Laugardaginn 5. j˙lÝ sÝ­astli­inn brast ß me­ hlřvi­ri og ˙rhellis rigningu ß Vestfj÷r­um. Selßin Ý Skjaldfannardal Šr­ist og fˇr hamf÷rum. Allir lŠkir trylltust og jafnvel bŠjarlŠkurinn var­ a­ stˇrfljˇti.

Hjˇnin ß Skjaldf÷nn, ■au Indri­i A­alsteinsson og Kristbj÷rg Lˇa ┴rnadˇttir, ur­u fyrir stˇrtjˇni. Varnargar­ar og řmis mannvirki, sem hafist var handa vi­ fyrir um 60 ßrum, eru stˇrskemmd.

Ůegar okkur ElÝnu bar a­ Skjaldf÷nn ßsamt vinafˇlki f÷studaginn 11.j˙lÝ, var bŠjarlŠkurinn en Ý ham eins og heyra mß af me­fylgjandi hljˇ­riti. Hljˇ­rita­ir voru samtals 2,44 klst af bŠjarlŠk ßn nokkurs afskur­ar. HÚr ver­a 10 mÝn˙tur lßtnar nŠgja. MŠlt er me­ gˇ­um heyrnartˇlum.

Nota­ir voru tveir Sennheiser ME-62 Ý AB-uppsetningu.


In English

This summer has been warm and extremely weat in some parts of Iceland. On July 5 it burst on with windy warm weather and the extremely heavy rain on the Westfjords in Iceland. Some creeks turned into big and aggressive rivers. On the farm of Skjaldf÷nn the river, Selß, destroyed a lot of facilities built during the past 60 years to protect the farmland.

Even the creek, just close to the farmhouse, burst into a noisy river. When we came ther on July 11, it was still bulky and angry as can be heard on this recording. Almost 3 hours of the creek were recorder but in this podcast only 10 minutes must do.

Sennheiser ME-62 in an AB-setup were used and a Nagra Ares BB+.

Good headphones are recommended.

Tˇnafj÷ld bŠjarlŠkjarins vi­ Ne­ri-Rau­sdal - the variety of tones of a little stream

Skvaldur lŠkjarins er heillandi. Ljˇsmynd: ElÝn ┴rnadˇttirVi­ hjˇnin fer­u­umst um sunnanver­a Vestfir­i 27.-29. j˙lÝ sÝ­astli­inn. Me­ Ý f÷r var Unnur StefanÝa Alfre­sdˇttir. A­ morgni 29. j˙lÝ hljˇ­rita­i Úg bŠjarlŠkinn vi­ Ne­ri-Rau­sdal. Nota­i Úg tvo R°de NT-2A hljˇ­nema Ý AB-uppsetningu (Omnidirectional).
Eftir ■a­ stillti Úg hljˇ­nemana ß ßttu, ■.e. ■eir hljˇ­ritu­u bŠ­i a­ og frß lŠknum. Ůetta er ekki alls ˇskylt Blumlein uppsetningu a­ ÷­ru leyti en ■vÝ a­ Ý Blumlein uppsetningunni er 90░ horn milli hljˇ­nemanna og er annar settur ofan ß hinn. Sß efri er lßtinn sn˙a a­ uppt÷kum hljˇ­sins, sjß http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blumlein_Pair. ┴rangurinn var stˇrkostlegur. ═ fyrra hljˇ­ritinu er ßttu-uppsetningin notu­, hljˇ­nemarnir standa hli­ vi­ hli­ og hljˇ­rita Ý bß­ar ßttir. Seinna hljˇ­riti­ er AB-uppsetning, bß­ir hljˇ­nemarnir eru Ý vÝ­ri uppsetningu (omnidirectional). ═ bŠ­i skiptin eru um 40 cm ß milli ■eirra. ═ fyrra hljˇ­ritinu heyrist greinilega dřpt og skvaldur lŠkjarins. MŠlt er me­ gˇ­um heyrnartˇlum.

In ENGLISH
I and my wife went to the West Fjords in Iceland and travelled around on July 27-29 with our friend, Unnur StefanÝa Alfre­sdˇttir. In the morning of July 29 I recorded the bubble and singing of the stream at the farm, Ne­ri-Rau­sdalur. Two R°de NT-2A were used in an omnidirectional Ab-Stereo setupá with 40 cm spacing. Then I changed the configuration to an eight setup, with the same location of the mics. This is a kind of related to the Blumlein Setup except that in Blumlein the mics are close to each other in a 90░setup with one above the other (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blumlein_Pair).
The difference was shaking. In the first recording the eight configuration is used and the AB-setup in the second one. Please note the deapth of the eight figured sound and how the deep tones of the spring are getting through. A Nagra Ares BB+ was used.

The Brei­amerkursandur, Southeast-Iceland, is a magnificient place with the glaciers to the north and the Atlantic Ocean to the south. On February 23 Elin and I recorded the sounds of the streaming water from the lagoon to the sea, with the noise of the ocean to the left and the water with breaking ice infront.
A Nagra Ares BB+ was used together with a Rode NT-2A and a Sennheiser ME-64 in an MS-setup.
The photographer was my wife, ElÝn ┴rnadˇttir.

Dj˙pur hljˇmur Glanna

Vatni­ fřkur Ý nor­ankaldanum.  Ljˇsmynd: ElÝn ┴rnadˇttir

Mßnudaginn 9. j˙lÝ hˇfumst vi­ handa vi­ a­ hljˇ­rita Glanna Ý Borgarfir­i. Glanni er alls ekki einn af mestu fossum landsins, en hann břr yfir mikilli fegur­. Landslagi­ er f÷gur umgj÷r­ umhverfis fossinn og hann hljˇmar ßgŠtlega. Ůrßtt fyrir nor­an stynningskalda var ekki talin ßstŠ­a til a­ draga ˙r lßgtÝ­ninni, en ■ß glatast talsvert af mikilfengleika hljˇ­sins.

Hljˇ­rita­ var me­ Nagra Ares BB+ ß 44,1 kHz og 24 bitum. Nota­ir voru R°de NT-1A og NT-50 hljˇ­nemar Ý MS-uppsetningu.

The deep sounds of the waterfall Glanni

á

The waterfall of Glanni in Borgarfjordur, Iceland, is not one of the biggest waterfalls in the country, but known for itĹs charm and beauty. It sounds perfectly well.

In spite of the northern breeze I didnĹt cut of the lower frequencies. Then I would have lost the deep tones of the waterfall.

A Nagra Ares BB+ was used together with R°de NT-2A and NT-55.

Una­sstund Ý elli­aßrhˇlmum

┴ annan Ý hvÝtasunnu, sk÷mmu fyrir hßdegi, hÚldum vi­ ElÝn hjˇlandi ˙t Ý elli­aßrhˇlma. Ůar nßmum vi­ sta­ar, ■ar sem okkur ■ˇtti vŠnlegt a­ hljˇ­rita fugla. Vi­ komum Nagra-tŠkinu fyrir ßsamt R°de NT-2A og NT-55 Ý Ms-uppsetningu og hÚldum sÝ­an ß brott.

On Monday May 28, I and my wife, ElÝn, took our tandem and rode it to the deltas at elli­aßrhˇlmi in the eastern part of Reykjavik, where there is a nice park with lanes and a tiny forrest. We found a clearing space where we put the Nafra Ares BB+ together with R°de NT-2A and an NT-55 in an MS-Setup and left it there for 30 minutes.

á

The sound from the city is heard as well as the water flowing some 40-50 metres away. Redwings, Waggtails and Wrens are also heard, but their sounds are quite low. Even though this recording is rather still and little happens, it is relaxing for oneĹs mind. Headphones are recommended.
