IN ENGLISH

mThe blackbirds nearby our house start their concerts normally in ghe beginning of April. The noise from the trafic makes it difficult to recofd them during the rush-hours.

On the night before May 9 2017 2 Sennheiser ME62 were left on the balcony with 39 cm interspace. This episode started around 03:12. A distant recording like this is in some way a little charming.

As recordists know some sounds, not heard during the day, become audible at night. Ghe ventilation system of the nearby appartment hous is quite audible. The noise was reduced by cutting off 100 Hertz.

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.

In English

It is always refreshing to take a walk along the hiking trail around the Seltjarnarnes area west of Reykjavik. The birdlife is rich during the summer time. The arctic tern is quite common and the sound of the eiderducks and the chicks revives one's best feelings.

At around 11 pm on July 7 2016 there was moderate breeze from north-west. I decided to catch some of the environmental sounds. Some pedestrians and people biking can be heard as well as a nervous redshank.

The recorder was an Olympus LS-11. The mics were covered by small foamshields and a dead kitten from Rde.

The recording is 24 bits, 44,1 kHz. The download might therefore be a little slow.

At the eastern part of the village of Stvarfjrur en East Iceland there is a little grove where trees which have been planted there for the last 7 decades form a quiet place for people to enjoy the nature and the birds.

This is the last recording from our trip to Northwest Iceland this summer.

In the morning of July 14, around 7 there was a little rain at Kirkjubl in Steingrmsfjrur, Northwest-Iceland. The drops can be heard on the roof of the guesthouse some 12 m away from the mics.

Many birds entertained us. Just to name some of them: golden plower, ringd plower, arctic tern, whimbrel, snipe, redwing, redshang and some more. A sheep was also heard.

There are some other birds which are not counted. It would be interesting if listeners would try to recognize them.

Recorded with 2 Sennheiser ME-62 on a Nagra Ares BB+.

In English

On April 15 2014 I went to the farm of Heyklif, which lies between Stvarfjrur and Breidalsvk in Eastern Iceland, though closer to Stvarfjrur. In the cliffs north of the farm the fulmars are nesting. We set up the microphones close to the house which gave them a shelter from the strong southwestern wind.

The recording is quite descriptive for the sometimes stormy spring in Iceland. The deep sounds of the sea and the wind are heard as well as the fulmars, Redwings, some geeze, and other birds.

Headphones are recommended.

My assistants were Kristjn Agnar Vgsei, a 17 years old boy together with his grandfather, Hrafn Baldursson.

Two Rde Microphones NT-2A were used in an AB setup. The mics were in baskets and dead cats were also used.

In the first recording a flock og geeze is heard when 10 minutes have passed and a plower is heard in the second recording.

INENGLISH

The farm Heyklif is located on the peninsula Kambanes between Stvarfjrur and Breidalsvk in Eastern Iceland.
Today on April 10 2013 I and my friend, Hrafn Baldursson, went there to visit the farmers there. We wanted to see if the sea swallows had started thinking about their nests.
We went down to the shore, where there is a narrow channel into the coast, called Evil Stall. The cliffs on the opposite side are a little higher and therefore the ambience perfect.
While setting up the Rode NT-2A and NT-55 in a Blimp the wind started blowing from the north-east, which can be heard in the recording.
A Nagra Ares BB+ was used. My helping hands were Hrafn Baldursson and the farmer, Sturlaugur Einarsson.
Photos will be published later.
Good headpphones are recommended.
The recording was made in MS-stereo.
