A Dawn Chorus in Lorraine


2014, May. I spend some days at my grand-father place in Boucq, Lorraine. All is very calm, the surroundings are bursting with insects, frogs, birds and animals. I decide to set up the mics very early, to capture the night and the rising sun. The forest is just by the house, the night is very silent, and the dawn chorus suddenly emerges.

Arbre, Royaumont, Août 2019.

Recorded with a pair of Sennheiser MKH8040 on a Sonosax Minir.
