June 5th, 2012

This recording was made on a warm, clear day in early June right on the sandy bank of the Mississippi River -- between Illinois and Missouri. You hear the low, strong surge of the diesel engines as a barge slowly passes through and, what I find most enjoyable, you hear the gentle lapping of the river as the waves reach the sandy shore. You also hear various birds, including the common Red-Winged blackbird. Even though this recording was made around 3PM in the afternoon, you also hear a low chorus of insects adding to the relaxing summer-like ambience. A very peaceful, yet strong soundscape of a majestic natural wonder that’s been here for millennia. Recording made with the Zoom H4N, using the built-in internal mics.
