I set the Zoom H4 on my front door stoop a few weeks back and just happened to catch this 3.5 minute symphony of natural and manmade sounds. I think it's pretty cool how there are 3 or 4 themes that occur starting with the crickets, then the airplane flying over, a car starting up and driving by, and ending with chorus of cidadas. This "nature" sample kind of fits in with the recent post about nature and man. As I listen to it I realize how often I'm too busy to listen to the busyness all around me. So here ya go... a relaxing slice of suburban summer:
The pic is from the stoop where the recording occurred.
Have a great Thursday!
