  • Description

    Recording notes : In the words of the sound recordist "It is afternoon in the valley above the little town of Bèukkzsâerc. The weather has turned suddenly and we two sound recordists are soon to be drenched. There is no cover, just meagre bushes positioned at intervals alongside the path which leads back over the hill to the hotel. An electrical storm rages menacingly, whilst many birds continue to sing unabated. Prominent amongst these is a Marsh Warbler, active n a reedbed, and occasionally showing itself above the reed heads. Dogs bark, cocks crow, and human activities can be heard from time to time. Strangely, for an afternoon soundscape, the songs are animated and fresh. Perhaps the thunder and lightning excite the birds?"
