Trees and bushes in the wind
Open fields and wetland sounds
Shores of Jetzel river sounds
Open windows at farm house sounds
Tractors and farm machinery sounds
Rural garden: morning, day, and evening sounds
Outdoor restaurants sounds
Goose shed sounds
Dannenberg Market sounds
Hitzacker Graveyard sounds
On board a small Elbe river ferry
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.
