Nature Sounds Society 2014 Workshop

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014
Sunrise at Sierra Valley, CA 2014

The 30th annual Nature Sounds Society Workshop was held the last weekend in June this year. We had a small but eclectic and energizing group of participants and presenters.

Steve Sergeant gave us his take on recording in surround, his method advocates for the use of height channels. The new feature film audio formats such as Atmos use loudspeakers in the ceiling to achieve this immerse effect.

Steve Bumgardner talked about his experience reviving the National Park Service’s print publication (1922-1985) Yosemite Nature Notes in a video format. Steve shared some behind the scenes footage of capturing Moonbows. Please check out the whole series here.

Some of my sounds:

Sierra Valley

Carman Valley had very active overflights this year, a disturbing trend

And finally Madora Lake (LOUD!) This is a recording using Telinga’s SSM stereo mic
