Morning recording in Copenhagen / Amager

This is a field recording from nearly the center of Copenhagen, 22nd August 2013 during the morning rush hour. The view shows a the green and beautiful areas from the old fortification system, however the sound image is completely dominated by the busy road just a few meters behind. There were also plenty of bicycles and runners in the area, but there is no doubt that the dominating sound in the city comes from cars.

Green areas in front of the microphone head, but the sound image is dominated by a busy road, just at few meters behind.

The recording was made using my standard recording setup, which uses a dummy head and QTC40s with pressure equalizers. This creates a semi-binaural sound image.
