Last year, at the end of February / Beginning of March, I did a trip in the northern forests of Montreal, Quebec. Near Rawdon, there are some great pieces of typical forest.
This was the first part of a series of winter forests recording sessions.
I stayed 3 days recording day and night ambiences of the snowy Nature.
I walked many hours in the cold in order to find some interesting locations.
Even with snowshoes, it was difficult to get around as the snow was soft and deep, I easily sunk into the snow cover.
All in all it was a great time where I could record some quiet ambiences without human noise. I got some birds, crows, freezing rain, snow blizzard, chilly wind, woodpeckers…
I used a double M/S Rig with a AKG C414 configured in Bidirectionnal and 2 Rode NT5.
