Kawartha Sounds


I was on vacation at the cottage recently and made some field recordings (with an Olympus DM-620). Here are two (both CC-BY), each about half an hour long: one of sounds in the early morning and one of sounds in the night. This is what a Canadian cottage sounds like when you’re just sitting out there quietly letting things happen around you.

The morning recording (from 07 August 2016) has birds chirping, water hitting the dock, waves lapping against the shore, boats going by, and a dog barking in the distance now and then (download FLAC):

The night recording (01 August 2017) is mostly crickets chirping and (of course) waves lapping against the shore (download FLAC):

More and longer recordings to come as I listen and process them.
