Sennheiser MKH 60
and R09 handheld
Anna and I went out so I could get some more of the impact sounds I started on Wednesday. There is a nearby construction area where they have wire fences and giant plastic barricades. Anna came for the walk, but she insisted on carrying the metal rubbish bin. (often on her head :-) ) I got some really good sounds of bashing the bin against the barricades and then dragging it along them to simulate movement scrapes. I did the same against the wire fences. I’m sure passers-by wondered what this insane man was doing attacking a wire fence with a rubbish bin, but its not the first time I have had some strange looks as I’ve done recording and its certainly not going to be the last time.
It was nice having Anna there for company and she also helped out by holding the R09, which meant I could work hands free. I think I might still do one more session on this stuff, but I wanted to get back and have a listen to the material I have so far to see exactly what I still need to get. I think I got some good material tonight so I have progressed well on this group of material.
