Maple sap sounds on our live stream

The sounds of running maple sap are now on our live stream on the Locus Sonus soundmap.

The sap is running in New England and beyond, and is harvested through the late winter/spring to be boiled down into the gold of the north, maple syrup. You’ll also hear locals like black-capped chickadee, tufted titmouse, and downy woodpecker.

We connected a pair of LOM Uši Pro and stuck them under the lid with magnetic clips, then ran them into our SoundcampStreambox.(More information on the Streambox, including how you can make one yourself, is here.)

Lyman Loop, Westhampton MA

Ambisonic recording decoded to Blumlein stereo

A windy day in the Lynes Woods Wildlife Sanctuary, on the Lyman loop. Nearly still under the trees, with no other people and no virtually wildlife except for some distant crows, the sky above the trees was on the move. I love the full sound of the rush of wind high up in the sky, and the Sennheiser Ambeo microphone seems to enjoy it too. Here I have decoded the recording in Bluemlein stereo; I often find Blumlein gives a rich rendering of the sense of space, with detail and room.
