Rainy September forest ambience

This is an all-night audio field recording of the September forest ambience, captured at my usual spot in Brøndbyskoven (See also: 3-5-2017. 22-3-2017, 11-2-2017). Its now 24th of September and autumn is rapidly emerging. Still everything is green, just in gradually darker nuances. It has been a very wet month and neither did this recording escape a good amount of rain.

Rainy morning in Brøndbyskoven, September 24, 2017. Click for much larger version.

There is not much activity to hear in the night. Out of the full recording of +12 hours  I have chosen a clip from the deep night ambience where you can hear the rain setting in. Listen in headphones.

The clip starts 3:15 am. In the first half, you can hear the calm forest ambience with occasional raindrops from the canopy. At about 4:15 more persistent rain sets in, lasting the rest of the clip.


Recording setup in Brøndbyskoven. Everything is still dense and green.

T=14 C, >95% RH, light rain, wind very calm from East. Standard Tree-ears microphone setup w. Primo 172 capsules, Microtrack 24/96 with powerbank.
