A trip to the Noosa Country show today was more for curiosity than for recording. I did take my gear with me but as expected between all the announcements, bands and crowds there was no chance to record anything other than announcements, bands and crowds. There were several old cars on display and I did take the opportunity to talk with several of the owners and I may have organized some future recording session which will hopefully provide some excellent material, so keep watch for updates this week.
A walk this evening through some of the new development areas near the Noosa River provided a bit of material. Some isolated night insects and frogs were good to sample as I am sure I will be able to get group sounds of these creatures at a later date, but it is often hard to record a good clean isolated samples. I was somewhat surprised that the swamp in the new development area did not have more frogs in it. That’s always a bad sign as the frogs are the first thing to leave when a area is contaminated or just generally not a good environment for creatures.
