Materiaal 060​​​︱​​​Submerging in a Forgotten Pond

by Bernhard Wöstheinrich



Materiaal Series, Part 060

This session is based on a sample set created from recordings of ponds. These sounds were recorded with a very special microphone, designed to capture all those mysterious sounds found in swamps, pools and smaller lakes. This device is capable of picking up all the scratching, hissing and cracking underwater noises, produced by plants, insects and everything else down there, revealing the secrets that go on right in your back yard.
