A recording made around Noon on the edge of a woods located right in the middle of a major midwestern university. Throughout this entire recording, you'll hear the everpresent hum of heating and air conditioner units running. You will also hear faint conversations and laughter of students as they walk to class, faint sounds from a nearby construction site, distant rumble of traffic, the distant droning of an airplane lazily floating through the April sky.
From time to time you will also hear the well known "beep...beep.....beep...." of a piece of heavy equipment backing up.
However, despite all of the dominating background of man and his machines, nature comes through. Since
I was sitting on the edge of a fairly large woods which sits in the center of all of the concrete and glass and steel, the sweet singing of birds lasts throughout much of this recording.
Equipment used: Zoom H4N recorder using the INTERNAL stereo microphones set on 180 degrees for the greatest sound capture.
