Sennheiser MKH 60
Boom pole array
We are now on our way North to Queensland. We have hired a 4WD and will be spending about 5 days driving along the east coast of Australia. I plan to record anything of interest whenever I get the chance. I had missed the opportunity to record a wind power generator in Japan, and so I was glad to have the chance to grab some material here. We were able to get within about 50 meters of a very large wind turbine and the sound as we go tout of the car was great. These things are pretty big and the sound was well worth the detour. Typically there were cows who decided to be very noisy, but I got a fair bit of material with just the turbine going. I also recorded the power depot next to the car-park which had a good generic electrical hum going on.
