Engisprettur ß KrÝt - Grasshoppers on Creta (Crete)

Dagana 17.-28 september vorum vi­ ElÝn ß KrÝt. Var ■a­ bŠ­i ßhugaver­ og yndisleg fer­.

F÷studaginn 21. sept. fˇrum vi­ ßsamt nokkrum ═slendingum ß matrei­slunßmskei­ ß břlinu Kissamos skammt utan vi­ Chania, sem er nŠststŠrsta borg eyjarinnar. Var ■ar haldi­ matrei­slunßmskei­ sem var Ý raun Ý ■vÝ fˇlgi­ a­ vi­ tˇkum ■ßtt Ý undirb˙ningnum.
Ůegar verkefnin ur­u of flˇkin kom Úg mÚr fyrir skammt frß břlinu og hljˇ­rita­i engisprettur.
MßltÝ­in var una­sleg. Břli­ er sjßlfbŠrt a­ mestu leyti og hefur veri­ Ý eigu s÷mu fj÷lskyldu Ý 100 ßr.
Me­fylgjandi hljˇ­rit er samsett ˙r fjˇrum hljˇ­ritum. Styrkurinn var hinn sami en engispretturnar voru misjafnlega hßva­asamar.
MŠlt er me­ gˇ­um heyrnartˇlum og hafi­ ■au ekki of hßtt stillt.

In English
My wife and I spent our time on the island of Creta (Crete) on sept 17-28 this year.
On September 21 We went together with some Icelanders to the Kissamos farm close to the town of Chania in north-west Crete for a cooking course.
The farm has been in the same family for 100 years and the environment is wonderful.
The agriculture there is mostly sustainable.

When things got too complicated I went to the garden recording the grasshoppers.
Enjoy the listening.
Good headphones recommended. Be careful with your ears. The recording is made of several recordings.

The Thursday December 21 2017 was rather a windy one in Seltjararnes in the Reykjavik area. At around 14:30 we had some snowstorms. The Zoom H6 was taken out for recording. I have to admit that this treatment of the recorder is not something supposed by the producer.

IN ENGLISH

Som fieldrecordists are wondering if smartphones can be used for field recording.

Indeed the phones are sensitive for wind.

GÝsli Helgason brought his waste to a recycling centre in Reykjavik one Sunday morning and recorded among other things the sound of the machine which counts tins and bottles.

His recording was made with Samsung S6 and Amazing MP3 Recorder, originally as a 16 bits wav-file.

His wife, HerdÝs Hallvar­sdˇttir, brought her iPhone to Paris and recorded some dixyland music

outdoors.

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.
