    I probably set the gain too high when I was recording. The hum is selfnoise for my recording unit, which is (unfortunately) a video camera. I think it's caused by the motor that drives the tape- with my new tapeless system I think I've reduced this noise quite a bit (for new recordings.) Thanks for the input.

    I actually prefer the longer one, allows for some overlap and play while editing. Thanks for the effort though, shows you hear the people. Peace.

    Were they green? If so, they're probably tropical parrots. There's a huge flock that comes by my area every year now, by the hundreds, and they are LOUD... and yes, very annoying. :) The whole flock actually parked right outside my bedroom in the trees this fall and I beat myself up that I didn't have any batteries in my microphone!

    Thanks. Very close to what I was looking for, can't really explain, but it's still very good.

    Haha, thanks. I guess I'll add the "creepy" tag. :)
    BTW, This is a little piece of rejected sound design I did for Project Aqua back in the day.

    The "clicking" happens when a new arc is sparked at the base of the ladder during the dispersion of the previous arc. This is part of how the device works (see the flickr photos for a better idea.)
    We did find a way to keep an arc "alive" by blowing it down towards the base, but this produces a different noise. You can hear this effect in this sample:

    The effect you want can probably only be achieved through postproduction, or recording a different device...

    If you could use a Jacob's Ladder continuously, without all the "clicking", you might make it sound like an electrical surge or something. That would be cool.
