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.

An MS-microphone, attached to the device, was protected by a fury windshield from Rycote and an extra foam windshield from Sennheiser.

Good headphones recommended.

FjarlŠgir svart■restir - Distant blackbirds

═ nßgrenni mÝnu eru nokkrir svart■restir sem hefja tˇnleikahald um mßna­amˇtin mars-aprÝl. Umfer­arni­urinn veldur ■vÝ a­ erfitt er a­ hljˇ­rita ■ß frß sv÷lum h˙ssins.

A­faranˇtt ■ri­judagsins 9. maÝ 2017 voru tveir Sennheiser ME-62 skildir eftir ˙ti ß sv÷lum Ý AB-uppsetningu me­ 39 cm millibili. Nota­ur var Zoom H6 hljˇ­riti.

Me­fylgjandi hljˇ­rit er frß tˇnleikum sem hˇfust um kl. 03:12. Ůa­ er eitthva­ rˇandi vi­ fjarlŠgan fuglas÷ng.

Eins og hljˇ­ritarar vita heyrast řmis hljˇ­ ß nŠturnar sem vi­ t÷kum ekki eftir ß daginn. LoftrŠstikerfi nŠsta h˙ss heyrist vel. Dregi­ var ˙r hßva­anum me­ ■vÝ a­ skera af 100 ri­um.

á

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.

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

Indeed the phones are sensitive for wind.

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
