Nice is Nice

Beautiful Nice city! It got the right name!

The old town has nice little colored streets with smells ans shops.
Great soundwalk in here!


Of course, the sea is omnipresent!

This floor made me dizzy somehow:

Incognito in Basel, Switzerland

I still have been in stealth mode in the city of Basel (in French: Bâle),  few hours there but great city.

Some cafe ambiences…
and also exterior places

the market

Zurich! Switzerland biggest city

Following my trip to Switzerland.

Zurich is a nice, artsy, German and bike-friendly metropolis!

Some crowds, restaurant terrace in the old city.

a small amusement parc

a greenhouse in the botanic garden.

Perfect Swiss Soundscape

What is the soundscape you have in mind whenever one speaks about Switzerland? 
I think I got this one. Not easily though. but with few days of meandering in the inner country.
Visual landscapes are more easy to capture than their corresponding soundscapes!
Partly because too many noise pollution is going on.
One main reason is that Switzerland is in the middle of Europe airplane flight paths.

Quad / Double Stereo Config

I have been testing out my config in the Switzerland country around Interlaken.
I put in place an ORTF Stereo with Sennheiser MKH8090, coupled with a stereo pair of DPA 4060 spaced omnis.
All connected to Sound Devices MixPre-6.
I found this configuration quite interesting to record immersive ambiences.

Ambiences in Bern and around

Wandering  around this beautiful Unesco heritage site. Bern is really a nice place. The atmosphere is really interesting with the market and tramway.

I also have been to the Roman city of Avenches and its Roman amphitheatre ruins.

I took the opportunity to record distant traffic!

Even though I stayed just few hours in Bern,  I got a ticket for my  parking !! oups, I would say bicycles are king around here! I like to see it this way!
