In English

The weather today, Friday March 3, was sunny and just a gentle wind.

I and my wife went to the lake in the center of Reykjavik. There was a lot of screeming and shouting of the swans, ducks and geese as well as other urban sounds.

We made recordings at 4 spots close to the City hall of Reykavik and concluded where warm water runs into the lake to keep a small pool open for the birds, as the lake is now covered with ice.

Recorded with a Zoom H6 recorder with an attached stereomic set up as 120.

Good headphones are recommended.

Enjoy the listening.

The annual 10 km run was held in Reykjavik on August 20 in advance of The Reykjavik Marathon with thousands of participants. The atmosphere was quite vivid and the participant were stimulated by the audience.

Please pay attention to a episode close to the end of the recording, when a small aeroplane which is heard coming from the south-east flying to north-west (around 26 minutis).

A Nagra BB+ was used together with Rde NT-2A in an 8 setup and NT55 as the mid channel. The recording was made in MS-stereo.

The mics were located around 175 cm above the ground. Perhaps they should be kept a bit lower to record the foodsteps of the participants.

Good headphones are recommended.

In English

This recording is best enjoyed by using headphones.

The annual Reykjavik Run was held on August 23. More than 1100 people participated in Marathon and Half-Marathon and over 8.000 in 10 km running. The event was recorded as has been done since 1998.

The first sample started around 09:05 when the first runners had arrived. Due to the noise from cars the recording before is not worth listening.

The second sample started around 10:00 when the first runners were approaching. Pay attention to how people tried to disturb the runners by driving, biking and walking against the stream.

The runners pass by like a river of people.

Recorded in an MS-Setup with Rde Nt-2A and NT-55. The recorder is as most often Nagra Ares BB+.

Recorded infront of Tjarnarbl 14 at Nesvegur, Seltjarnarnes.

The spring has been relatively cold and windy in Iceland. On
May 18 I and my wife went to the cycling path along the beech close to
Seltjarnarnes. There a wall has been built to protect the path and the coast.
We went down to the beech and recorded the small waves playing with the stones.
It was windy which can be heard. For comparison, see Magnus
Bergssons recording
from May 13. Two Sennheiser ME-62 were used in an
AB-setup with 40 cm spacing.j the recorder was Nagra Ares BB+.

IN ENGLISH

While walking along the shore of the Lake of Reykjavik, which is located in the center of town, everything seems mostly calm. But things can change rapidly.

On July 2 this year I and Elin were walking along with our 7 years old grandson and it was decided to feed the birds with som bread, even though they stay in The largest bread soup of Iceland". We were on the east bank not far from the City hall.

There were ducks, several kinds of seaguls and swans struggling to get their share. At the end a swan bit one of the ducs in the wing and held her for a while, but the duck struggled to get itself free.

The recording was made with a Olympus LS-11 in 16 bits, 44,1 kHz.

A raven with two sounds

When I and my wife were walking on the pedestrian road nearby the KR-sports stadium in western Reykjavik today we heard a raven, probably a youngster, croaking loudly. It hat placed itself on the top of a lamppost, but lovered his voice when we stopped and pointed the mics towards it. I have been told that these sounds are only heard when the ravens are preparing their nesting, but obviously this is not the case.

The wind disturbed a little and a little sound came from the jacket of a nearby person.

An Olympus LS-11 was used.

A construction side in Reykjavik.

In Reykjavik, east of Oddagata, a street at the area of The University of Iceland, a team of construction workers is currently building an apartment house with flats for students. These sounds are not as frequently heard in Iceland as in the years before the financial crash in 2008 and the econonic recession, which followed., when I and my wife passed by on our tandem 2 days ago. all kinds of machinery and old fashioned hammers were heard and many things more.

We went there again yesterday and I collected some samples of sounds.

A Nagra Ares BB+ was used, recorded at 44,1 kHz and 24 bits. Rde NT-2A and NT-55 omnidirectional were used in a MS-setup, covered by a blimp.

Good headphones are recommended. Please enjoy the noise!Take care of your ears and enjoy the sounds.
