Bamboo in a Canyon
This episode was recorded at the bottom of a narrow canyon. Water pours down constantly from the rock wall and hard-packed dirt up above, causing frequent landslides. Objects fall in from above, like forgotten bits of nature. A piece of bamboo five inches across and eight feed long lay impaled on the rocks at the bottom.
As water dripped on it from above, the hollow shape acted as a beautiful drum. Birds argued throughout the canyon - finches, hummingbirds, and the occasional crow.
I imagined this was the sound of a midday rain on the a home in the jungle, or a quietly rainy day on the balcony.
This field recording was recorded by placing the microphone as close as possible to the falling water without it getting wet. It is a continual recording, omitting only my footsteps at the beginning and the end of placing the microphone.
I hope you enjoy it. I certainly enjoyed being there.

Birds and Water
Nature is all around us, and wonderful in so many ways.
This field recording was made at the back-end of a small canyon on the California coast. Water drips continually from the land above the canyon, spattering sparsely on the rocks at the bottom. Birds swarm the area - mostly House Finches and Anna's Hummingbirds, but also some Crows. Due to the rocks and the depth, there's no cell signal. Just the lovely sounds of nature. (A few moments of passing planes were cut out).
I hope you enjoy!
