This month I plan on blogging about more of the crazy stupid sounds I’ve gathered during my recording sessions in North Idaho and other places around the universe. This week I want to share a few ice and water sounds that are a little bit different.
Here are some sound effects from a session back in mid November at a small pond in the North Idaho mountains. I used a Sennheiser MKH-8040 and a SD-702 at 24-Bit 96K to record tossing small and medium sized stones onto a very thin layer of ice. Some broke through and splashed and some skipped and bounced across the recently frozen ice layer. We had just had our first deep frost of the season and I was curious if the pond up behind the ranch had started to freeze over. During the winter this pond is not easily accessable by car because of the steep road that leads of the mountain so I figured I better get up there while I still could. Feel free to download the 24-Bit 48K sound file at SoundCloud. Enjoy! -Frank
