High Desert Ambiences 4: Coyotes

• In High Desert Ambiences 4: Coyotes, I revisit the place where my field recording journey started: West Texas. On my drive out, a massive wildfire was burning large parts of the Davis Mountains. The day I arrived firefighters were finally able to contain the blaze, but sadly not before 22,000 acres burned. Much of the wildlife is too slow to escape, but luckily one pack of coyotes was fast enough to climb over a ridge. Normally I hear coyotes out in the plains where they love hunting jackrabbits. That night, however, I was recording from the edge of the dead fire. I was stunned to hear howling deep in the valley! The pack had run into the mountains to escape the blaze.
• In this library, hear the angst-ridden vocals of coyotes running to escape a wildfire. Hear the howls and yips of an extremely close pack bouncing from high valley walls. Hear an echo chamber filled with the haunting howls of coyotes who has just had their home burned.

Container Ship Voyage

We had the chance to make the crossing of the North Atlantic Ocean on a cargo ship container (ATLANTIC STAR).
We boarded in the Antwerp industrial port in Belgium, sailed the English Channel, and then stopped at Liverpool’s industrial port.
Then we crossed the North Atlantic Ocean to reach Halifax, Canada. This trip took us 10 days, 10 days of sounds recording.

Through this trip, we were able to access places that normally are closed to the public: industrial ports, and a container ship.

-The completed sound bank (Stereo + Surround-Ambisonic) contains 154 files record in 24 bit / 96 kHz

Italian Crowds and Countrysides

The provided collection features over 1 hour of ambient recordings in Northern Italy, in the Trentino, Veneto, Lombardia, Piemonte, and Liguria regions and include cities, country sides, mountains, grape fields, national parks, roomtones, crowds,  mornings/days/afternoon and nights. Also noted is some city ambiences and crowds are void of traffic noise as some city laws forbid traffic, they are clean and isolated calm and quiet crowds.

They are stereo recordings in decoded  MS and XY. All files are mastered the same, in Protools HD, and are monitored through a phase scope to keep the files phase coherent, and edited to be M&E friendly.

Enjoy!
