One of the discoveries of audio production discoveries I’m most grateful for is the layers of sound hidden in silence. This morning I went outside to record some bird song, but as soon as I had my headphones and microphone on, I started hearing whole new layers of crows, distant traffic, early-morning chores, a helicopter. In the words of the Kitchen Sisters, a “microphone is a is a divining rod. It’s a Geiger counter. It’s a stethoscope.” It’s a whole new way of hearing the world.
Best heard with headphones.
