Playing with audio

About a year ago I was fortunate to be a part of the Hearing is Believing Audio Institute at the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. It was a heady week - we not only learned about recording and digital audio-mixing, but also published a short audio piece (listen to it here). Armed with the right tools and the best intentions I envisioned creating and publishing my own pieces, but alas life stepped in (a new job and learning German) and the audio recorder sat unused. I've picked up my audio recorder recently and have tentatively stepped back into the world of audio recording and editing. For now I'm experimenting with recording ordinary sounds which surround us nearly every day but perhaps we don't "listen" to anymore because they are so common. I've added "Summer Storm" to the audio short pieces and will be adding additional pieces in the future. Hope you enjoy!
