The Circle Pond
So far, the recording that's been listened to most on my Soundcloud page is "The Circle Pond." This is a photo of where the natural sounds on the track were recorded. The pond is not far from where I live in Flagstaff, Arizona, near the San Francisco Peaks. My wife and I got to the pond at dawn, she to take photos and me to record. You can't hear the five deer that were passing by, but the ducks were doing an interesting "call and response." Later, I added echo to the sound of my wife's camera shutter clicking, to get a solemn, drum-like effect. You can listen to "The Circle Pond" here.
