New topic of the day, hunting magnetic fields through a new microphone, the “pickup”.
It is normally designed to be placed in the rose of an acoustic guitar. I chose this one because it doesn’t need hack or welds and it is already wired.
It’s easy to hijack this microphone to captures what we are not supposed to hear, the magnetic fields around us.
It’s a perfect tool to make electric sounds. I was inspired by the work of Jean-Edouard Miclot, I advise you to listen his findings.
Beware of your speakers, there are many low frequency (50Hz)
Some takes processed:
The set-up is somewhat bulky :
Mic-> DI -> preamps -> recorder
Not really convenient to carry outside, waiting for a real bag location, I stayed at home and at work to make my shots.
A big air conditioner:
A wireless phone:
An electric heater:
Be careful if you want to do the same.
