It was very nice weather this evening. The downtown was almost overcrowded with people which was shopping or just walking around to feel and smell the atmosphere of Christmas.
It was calm so the town smelled strongly of cloves, toasted knead, spirit, red vine, beer, all kinds of perfume, tobacco and even weed…and what is never missing in Reykjavik, a smell of exhaust from traffic.This was perfect weather to catch the sound of the Christmas rush hour.
Just 30 second after I start the recording, I heard beautiful singing voices. There were six singers of female song group „Jólabjöllurnar“.
I placed my self around 4 meters from the singers. Behind me was the audience on their walk who stopped for a moment to listen. The heavy background noise is mostly from car traffic, as usual.
This recording is captured with DIY binaural microphone rig which I just finished to prepare several hours before the recording. It contains two matched pair of parallel Primo EM172 capsules, connected to LOM phantom power adapter (see pictures).
I spent two hours walking around recording this evening. I noticed some audible time error between left and right channel in 30-40° around the rig which means the rig needs some changes in the future. But the funny thing is this time error sounds like a perfect „sound effect“ in combination with this well trained singers.
This was recorded on Lækjatorg square in Reykjavik town center between 9 – 10 pm.
Quality open headphones are recommended while listening at mid level.

Lækjartorg á Þorláksmessu 2017

Það var ótrúlega gott veður þessa Þorláksmessu. Miðbærinn var líka troðfullur af fólki, sem liklega skiptist jafn milli Íslendinga og útlendinga sem voru að versla, sýna sig og sjá aðra.
Þar sem ég gekk austur Austurstræti og var var nýbúinn að ræsa upptökutækið þá mátti heyra fagran söng frá Lækjartorgi. Ég gekk á hljóðið og þar var þá sextett fagurra kvenna að syngja jölalög.
Ég mátti til með að ná þessum söng á upptökutækið og gerði það þar til yfir lauk.

Accordion concert

Accordion day was celebrated all over in Iceland 5th of May with concerts in many public places all over the country. This was a perfect opportunity to cycle downtown and record a “squeeze box concert”. The concert was held in an open place at Hallærisplan (Ingólfstorg) in Reykjavik center and the players were members of the Reykjavik Accordion Club. In background, mostly on right side, are some bang and rumble noise from skate boards and motorcycles.
This recording was made with “binaural microphones” and Primo EM172 capsules.  There were rather much wind which sometimes disturbed the recording. So -20db was enabled at 20hz  in post.
Best to listen with headphones.

Harmónikudagurinn 5. maí 2012

Um allt land virðist sem þann 5. maí 2012 hafi „harmonikudagur“ verið haldinn  með pomp og prakt. Það kom ekki skýrt fram á heimasíðu harmonikufélaganna en um það mátti lesa á ýmsum öðrum blogg- og vefsíðum. Þennan dag var þó auglýst harmonikuball á Hallærisplaninu í Ríkisútvarpinu.
Það var því kjörið að bruna þangað á reiðhjólinu með upptökutæki og heimatilbúna “Binaural” hljóðnema. Það er því best að hlusta á upptökuna í góðum heyrnartólum.

In April 2012 the Premier of the People’s Republic of China, Wen Jiabao, visited Iceland.
On the first day he was driven to the Musical Hall to have a dinner.
On Facebook, people were encouraged to go there and request for free Tibet. I arrived rather late, but right at time when the prime ministers arrived with a lot of security staff on cars and motorcycles.
This recording was a “wind test” for my home made binaural mics with Primo EM 172 capsules. I put them in Rode WS5 foam and the result was very nice.

Frjálst Tíbet

Í april 2012 heimsótti forsætisráðherra Kína, Wen Jiabao, landið. Ekki stóð á mótmælendum til að mótmæla framferði Kínverja í Tíbet. Á fésbók var fólk hvatt til að mæta framan við Hörpu sem og nokkrir gerðu.
Stuttu eftir að upptakan hefst kemur öll hersingin með mikið mótorhjólagengi í fararbroddi en skýst bakdyramegin að inngangi Hörpu. Kínverjinn þurfti því ekki að horfast í augu við hina ógnvekjandi Birgittu Jónsdóttur sem var stödd meðal mótmælenda og kallaði þar í lítið “vasa-gjallarhorn”.
Upptakan er tekin með Binaural tækni og er því best að hlusta á upptökuna í góðum heyrnartólum.
