More than 3 hours of countryside and small town ambience. Lasting around 5 minutes on average, some clips are more than 10 minutes long.The collection includes the following ambiences:
- Trees and bushes in the wind
- The forest
- Open fields and wetlands
- Shores of Jetzel river
- Open windows at farm house
- Tractors and farm machinery
- Rural garden: morning, day, and evening
- Outdoor restaurants
- Next to a goose shed
- Dannenberg Market
- Hitzacker Graveyard
- On board a small Elbe river ferry
- and others.
Our Wendland collection does not focus on “pure” nature recordings, instead it captures a realistic sound portrait of the region the way it sounds today – including cars in the distance, farm work being done and other manmade sounds you’d currently hear in the area.
At the time of recording it was early autumn, with a medium to heavy breeze creating some nice leave rustling and wind sounds in nearby bushes and trees.
Some recordings contain birdsong and flying insects during the daytime, others include farm machinery and occasional swarms of geese heading south.
The small town ambiences consist of crowds at a market and restaurants, as well as traffic – on a bench right next to the cars and off in the distance recorded from the top of a nearby hill.
For more detailed descriptions about the ambiences in this collection see the metadata in our filelist or listen to the above preview montage and the full length example recordings below.
