Field recodings : South India

India is an amazing hunting area for a sound recorder.
Considering the size of this country, there is a wide diversity of rural and urban environment.


I went with a couple of miniature microphone, DPA 4060 omnidirectional, very discreet, light and especially practical. A part of the records has been achieved by placing the microphones on a cap.

My only regret is to not have bring a pair of cardioid mic.
It will be for the next trip, no doubt !

The hardest part was to record nature scenes between trucks, horns and million residents, it is difficult to find quiet places, even at 5am.

Here are some samples of my records laid end to end .

Happy listening!
