Re: Soundcard: Aleppo oak, Sicily

Bob and Will, Yes, the drier climate gives the leaves here a different kind of sound; the leaves strike each other and the results are indefinite pitches that are more like the tapping of a drum - and stronger in volume. I was trying to find a word for it - coarser came to mind, but the sound is mor...

Soundcard: Aleppo oak, Sicily

NTS, Currently in Sicily, sending this soundcard of the Aleppo oak, recorded on the Via Panoramica in Palazzolo, Acreide, Sicily. The dry, Mediterranean climate makes the leaves sound a lot different here... Date: September 23, 2013 Time: 4:00 p.m. State: Sicily Description: late afternoon at overlo...

Re: Tulip Tree co-champion & Sycamore

Bob, Let me know when you would like to come down, I would be happy to take you over to measure the tulip tree. Maybe Sam could meet us? Sam, I know exactly what you mean - I have made several soundscape recordings in the South and East Windsor area (silver maple, black walnut, norway spruce, and a ...

Re: Bernie Krause: The voice of the natural world

Ed - You beat me to posting this! Why we should listen to him: With a stellar electronic music resumé including work with The Byrds, Stevie Wonder and many others, Bernie Krause is assured a place in the pop culture canon. But Krause continues to make history by capturing the fading voices of nature...

Tulip Tree co-champion & Sycamore

I wanted to share these photos I just took recently. The first photo is of a Tulip Tree - I have been looking at this magnificent tree for years, and I pass it along my bicycle route which follows Old Main Street in South Windsor, CT. I recently came across the Connecticut's Notable Trees web site, ...

Re: Sonorities: white pine & red pine...

Joe, Definitely with a soundtrack. In my opinion, definitely not with music - or the instrumental music that is so often used in nature film/videos. For example, for video why not use sound the way sound is used in sound installations? Does orchestral music capture the sound of wildlife? There are n...

Re: Ray Asselin - Intro

Ray,
Your vase, bowls, and vessel turnings are really amazing - each piece is so distinct and those distinctions you really bring out in each piece - beautiful craftsmanship.

Re: Sonorities: white pine & red pine...

Will, looks like you had some nice gusts up there in that pine... did you use a GoPro for this? Joe, thanks for your thoughts on the GoPro. The Imax video and your idea of the forest would be really awesome - the CT Science Center has a pretty neat 3D theater with a really awesome audio set-up. The ...

Re: Sonorities: white pine & red pine...

Thanks Joe, I really appreciate your input. I believe that video can play an important role in determining why one tree from the next will sound different, and I understand your point - perhaps I should re-continue to make the videos. Some of my friends who are into nature photography are using a Go...

Re: Sonorities: white pine & red pine...

Bob and Joe, I am not sure why the sound of the needle trees that I have recorded all have different sonic characteristics. In the case if the white and red pines, I was considering the actual physical differences of the two trees, and how those differences may play a role into why the sound qualiti...
