I’ve made a collage of the recordings I made with my H4N during my honeymoon in Japan and Thailand. There was no compression applied, but there was a high-pass filter used on a couple recordings to eliminate wind rumble. I also used a Rode NTG3 Shotgun mic on some recordings.
The Japanese collage features trains, cicadas, temples, pachinko parlours, and a taste of Harajuku.
The Thai collage has long-tail boats, tuk-tuks, bats, frogs, gibbons, and a jewellery factory.
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!
