This is a nature recording from a rainy evening May 21st, 2013 in Østre Anlæg,- a park in central Copenhagen. During the last 2 weeks the leaves on any tree or bush have now unfolded. This is about 2-3 weeks later than last year. But now, what before was bare and gray is now heavily green and dense. And with the rain the experience is further enhanced by smells and sounds.
The recording was captured at 7-7.30 pm. The location is a central park in Copenhagen, part of the old fortification ring encircling the medieval city.
Frequent loud sounds of trains at the next door train track is the main remainder of this is in the middle of the city. The trains are producing some radical cuts through the otherwise relaxing sound scape.
With this recording an umbrella is placed above the recording setup to shelter the microphones and camera from the rain. The rain drops hitting the umbrella is what produces the loudest distinct rain drop sound.
For this recording, I have used my usual audio recording head and pressure equalizer setup mounted on top of the camera, whereby the sound perspective follows the camera view. The umbrella gave a good protection from the rain. This also produced a distinct rain sound. The CYL-75 antialiasing filter @ aperture 5.6, was applied on the camera.
