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.

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.

Stundarkorn ß Seltjarnarnesi - A short while at Seltjarnarnes

Ůa­ er jafnan endurnŠrandi a­ ganga hring um Seltjarnarnesi­. ┴ sumrin er fuglalÝf miki­ og n˙ er krÝan Ý essinu sÝnu.

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.

á

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

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