This is a recording of a magnificent thunder, that continued all night long. In the background you can hear the wind blowing in the leafs, in the trees. You can also hear a farmer working in the fields, harvesting. Right after the first big thunder you may notice the distant sound of a scooter driving away. Then suddenly comes the heavy rain and some more thunder. I think this actually is a spooky recording, because the farmers machines gives a very special dark sound. After i recorded this, it got too windy to continue recording.

This was recorded with a TSM PR1 portable digital recorder, with external stereo microphones. Edited in Audacity 1.3.5-beta on Ubuntu 8.04.2 Linux.

    I thought first that is a tornado siren in the beginning

    I like this! The farmer's machine also sounds like a slow moving or idling diesel locomotive.
    I love the bassy thunder, but I wish the rain-fall
    sound wasn't as plastic sounding. e.g. rain hitting plastic trash can lids.
    I'm still downloading it though, and will be looking for more great recordings from Kyster.
