Starting it off: summer thunderstorms
the way fresh snow makes everything quieter,
I especially like when I record something outside and I can hear people at a distance,
Spring reverb splash,
small intestine digestive processes (when it sounds like the Predator)
- You Defeated
- Victory Achieved
- Heir of Fire Destroyed
- Souls Retrieved
- Shinobi Execution
Haven’t heard the others yet…
The sound of 12 oz carbonated can being opened
A beach fire burning
Sprinklers ticking off
Protein sizzling on a grill
Old Zildjian K cymbals
My lovers voice
That sound when you hold a Slinky to one ear and let the other end drop to the floor.
The first glugs of wine pouring from a bottle.
Nikon F3 with motor drive (check the intro to Duran Duran’s Girls on Film to hear it).
Hearing the reverb spread around a row of trees on an open field.
These are so good!
Forest Ravens talking to each other.
Grey cuckoo Shrike.
(Way too many birds to list)
My Sleishman Drumkit and Bosphorus cymbals.
The sound of skateboard wheels at 80kmh or more when I used to do that.
Splitting a perfectly dry log with an axe.
Cracking a whip.
MS 20 ring mod.
The guitar sounds Ive been getting out of my Digitone.
SH101 through Quadraverb .
Farts that sound like a creaky door opening.
“I love you”
The air through a vacuum tube when you grab it at one hand and make it turn quickly.
Metal thing that resonates, and especially…
Bells and gongs
An acoustic snare
Old analog synth square wave
Your first open air gig after a year+ of shutdown.
Gongs, allowed to resonate
Filtered white noise.
Women speaking in a foreign accent, in a low, whispery voice
A dog sniffing round my face in an inquisitive way
The drums on 70s Barry White records.
You all are so poetic! It’s a joy to read
The rhythmic swooshing of kayak paddling.
Turin Brakes on Saturday night in the open air!±
Now you’re making me very nostalgic…
