New Ears

A while back I treated myself to some specialist microphones; a contact mic, hydrophone, & a coil-pickup mic purchased from Jez Riley. To be honest I should be doing more recording with them as they are awesome and great fun. One reason for getting them was that I am always quite frustrated when recording the city soundscape due to the monotony and lo-fi nature offered in these locations. It’s not so much the aggressive noisy nature of a city but when trying to capture particular sounds of interest there is always a drone of background information accompanying the sound in focus. Already I am delighted by the potential offered by these new mics, and wonder why it took me so long to get them 🙂
