/frg/ - Field Recording General

No.757496 ViewReplyOriginalReport
Over the last year, I've been cultivating an interest in found sound and field recording. It seems like a very /out/ hobby, and I know we have at least one active recordist (MJC Recordings) on this board, so I'm wondering if there are any others, or at least any interested parties. Discuss field recording and the myriad sounds of nature here!

Some basic information:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Field_recording (overview)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bioacoustics (more technical, nature-oriented subject)

http://jezrileyfrench-aquietposition.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-idyll-do-we-ever-actually-hear.html#links (a different take on fr and our perception of 'nature' overall from a prolific recordist)

Some work I've compiled:

https://vimeo.com/31758893 (contact mic play)

https://mappa.bandcamp.com/album/34-1113n-111-954w (more work with contact mics, this time a cohesive project! read the description; context is often paramount)

https://jonasgruska.bandcamp.com/album/l-ky (slovakian meadow sounds by one of favorite recordists, based in that area)

https://corwintrails.bandcamp.com/album/selected-field-recordings-from-india-and-nepal-volume-iii-environments (more urban pieces, interspersed with some wild sounds)
