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.

IN ENGLISH

The morning of September 17 was beautiful with the bright sunshine warming everything. The wind was almost still.

I took my Nagra Ares BB+ and a Rde NT4 with me to a pedestrian path in the western part of Reykjavik as I wanted to record the environmental sounds. The recording started just before 10 am. It was not as quiet as I thoght. Some 400 m to the south some construction work was going on as well as some 200-300 m to the north (on the left side).

The recording is in 24 bits 48 kHz.

The foam-windshield which comes with the mic was used as well as the Kitten from Rde.

I must say that I am very satisfied with the stereo immage og this mic which will be my replacement for Shure VP88. This recording is supposed to be an experiment.

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 a full size 24 stereo recording.

Ofviri 14. mars - The Tempest on March 14

In English

Yet another tempest raged in Southwest Iceland in the morning of March 14 ths year. The wind speed was about 30 m/sek.

A recording was made in our living room facing south-west.

A Nagra Ares BB+ was used together with 2 Rde NT1-A microphones in an AB-setup. The original recording is in 48 kHz and 24 bits.

The lower frequencies have not been cut off. Therefore the deep rumbling sounds of the hous are easily heard. We heard them ourselves and therefor I thought it unnecessary to edit the sound.

The recording starts at 09:45.

Good headphones are recommended.

In English

In the evening of December 1, 2014, we had a tempest from southwest in Southern Iceland. At Keflavik Airport the strongest blasts were at least 30 m/sec (108 km per hour). The weather is quite similar where I am living at Seltjarnarnes.

I placed 2 Rde NT1-A microphones in an AB-array with 30 cm spacing in the livingroom aproximately 2 m from the windows. It is quite interesting to sense the deep roaring of the house as an accompaniment to the wind, pressing through and some objects outside trying to leave the balcony. This recording describes what it is like staying alone at home as the tempest is raging outside.

Good headphones are strongly recommended.

In English

At Kirkjubol south of the village of Hlmavk in North-west Iceland is a guesthous run by Jn Jnsson and his Wife, Ester Sigfsdttir. I and Elin stayed there the night before July 14 this summer. We set up 2 Sennheiser ME-62 mics in an AB-setup 12-14 m from the house, facing towards the hills. This sample of 15 minutes is from 01:23-01:38.

Just after the recording starts the wind increases. The tide is high and therefore the sound of the waves is heard as well as the klinging sounds of a small stream nearby. Most of the birds were so far away that some of them were hardly audible with human ears. As there are not much contrasts in this recording it was possible to increase the volume greatly.

Those who want to live themselve into the mysterious sounds of the Icelandic summer night can try to listen, if they can hear the sounds of the elfs and other supernatural beings of Iceland.

About 7 hours were recorded during this night with my excellent Nagra Ares BB+. More recordings are to be released later.
