I recently returned from my honeymoon in Japan and Thailand. Naturally, I brought my Zoom H4N portable recorder, but this time I also brought a Rode NTG3 shotgun mic and a small contact mic. I recorded over 5GB of audio over the three week trip and I know I’ve got some great stuff but I haven’t had a chance to touch it yet. I really enjoyed all the chirps of the Cicadas and the rhythms of the trains so I spent a lot of time recording those.
I’ll post my recordings once I’ve had a chance to go through them and clean them up. Then I’ll start mangling them into music!
