Madrid! La gran ciudad


The market , a nice place to get tapas, wine and  great crowd ambiences!!
Something’s happening in here!
After many difficult place to sleep in, dormitory and crappy places, I finally got a nice comfortable bed!

Sea and the city

This day I am recording some ambiences of the city of Biarritz. At this place, the sea is agitated and generate high waves. This is thus a great spot for surfer. It also deliver highly noisy sea shore soundscape. The sound captures were interesting, let’s continue in ‘Pais Vasco’ (Pays Basque)…

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:

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.

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!

Geneva ambiences

For few days, I recorded some ambiences in the cosmopolitan city of Geneva, Switzerland!

The main spoken language in this part of Switzerland is French! And the city has a wide mixture of ethnicity.

I was impressed by the United Nations Office. I find it so enthralling to see that all these countries came in agreement to build these instances!

I have to say, in my opinion,  this city is not particularly beautiful, but at least they have a nice and big lake and an impressive fountain jet.

Maybe the most interesting aspect is that Spring has already begun…

oh! They have squirrel here too!
