I cannot call this feature sound of the week anymore as the last one was way too long ago. Anyway, this “weeks” is a recording I made from Stockholm’s Vasa museums cafe. The Vasa museum houses a huge sunken Swedish warship that went under in 1628. The museum is pretty cool and I took along a small H4N to grab some ambiences. It was recorded in 96/24.

Sound of the Week
This weeks sound was completely by accident (as are most great sounds). We went out for a nice little bike ride along the beach. Parked our bikes at the groin during a very windy moment and got a fantastic sound as the wind passed through the groin and then through my bike seat. Sounds like the kind of stuff you get with a contact mic only with a lot of the higher frequencies retained. Unfortunately this was about 3pm and the beach had quite a lot of people around so there is some bg noise, but with some careful editing and processing you could make some fantastic eerie drones with it. It was recorded with a Rode NTG3 (wish I’d taken a stereo mic/setup with me!) running into a Mix PreD then being dumped onto a PMD661 at 96khz/24bit.

So I noticed my library was lacking in some nice clean ambient tracks of waves hitting the shore. I also wanted to take the new recording kit for a test run. So at around 9pm we hit the beach to get an evening recording of the seas lapping up against the shore. I got two perspectives, one just standing in the middle of two groins getting pure waves. The other was me standing on a groin getting the sound of the waves lapping against it. There are a couple of bird noises heard now and then, but not enough to spoil the recording. As per usual, you can download the sounds and use them for anything you want, personal or professional projects. Sounds were recorded with a Rode NT4 running into a Sound Devices Mix Pre-D then stored using a Marantz PMD661. 96/24 resolution. Enjoy! Download via the soundcloud widget.
