All Decked Out For Quarantine Part 2

Another day in self-quarantine means another day out on the deck! This recording was made midday on Sunday. It was a bright sunny day with no construction, so I was inspired. The church bells were ringing, the birds were singing, and the squirrels and dogs were getting agitated. I’m not entirely sure why the neighbor pooch was getting so upset but he was wailing about something.

It has been weeks now, but I’m still struck by the utter lack air traffic. It is one of the real boons of this crazy time. [1]


Recording Geek Note: Rig consists of Schoeps CMC1′s with MK4 capsules setup for double ORTF. It was tracked with a Cooper CS 104 feeding a Sound Devices 744T
