This is an all-night audio recording from Amager Fælled, 18-19th September 2016. Amager fælled is a very diverse and unique green area just 2.5 km from the centre of Copenhagen. That is why quarter chimes of the town hall are clearly heard. The area has various vegetation and biotopes; mainly shrubland with a mix of forest, lake, reed forest and old salt marsh with grazing cows, and it is mainly left wild. Due to its size of 2.5 km2 it’s a really good opportunity for the Copenhagen citizens to step out into almost wild nature.
There are present plans of using the old marsh areas for buildings, as well as road construction.
For the recording I found a spot aside from the main paths into some bush vegetation just at the banks of a water channel with reeds. I think the recording serves well to give a relaxing and authentic insight into the nature- and city night sounds of Amager Fælled, September anno 2016 before various construction work sets in.
The recording is shortened to span the hours from 22:00-3:00 in the morning, plus 5 minutes in the beginning when I leave the setup in the dusk at 20:00. As I am recording in mp3 I dont have any options to post process the audio, expect trimming and changing the volume (in Mp3DirectCut). Listen in headphones, medium-high volume.
Night temperatures about 14C, dry air with no dew in the morning and persistent winds from NE. Recorder pointing north.
