“Wilderness Americas : Geyser and Volcano” is a collection of sounds focused on geothermal phenomena of Central and North America.
We recorded geysers in the Yellowstone National Park (USA) and two very actives volcanoes: the Fuego in Guatemala, and the Masaya in Nicaragua.
To complete this sound library, we added natural sound elements which are very efficient for sound design as designed sound material:
“Super volcano” eruption sounds, magma lake ebullition sounds, lava movement, and landslide sounds.
The geyser and Masaya volcano sounds (magma lake, lava movement) were recorded with the Telinga Parabola with a Sennheiser MKH 8040. The Telinga was used for its powerful ability to focus on sound details at a reasonable distance.
The explosions and eruptions of the Fuego volcano were recorded in surround with a Sennheiser DMS setup (MKH 8040-30) and also with the Telinga Parabola + MKH 8020.
-This sound bank contains 56 sound takes recorded in 24/96 kHz, and a total of 122 files.
« City Life : Central America » is a collection of sounds captured across 3 country of central america : Mexico, Guatemala and Nicaragua. This library focus on city atmosphere, especially in street/cover markets, pedestrian areas, parks, and many more. The sounds captured in Mexico show a more « modern » spanish atmosphere, compared to the Maya’s markets of Guatemala, where the people speak a mix of spanish and k’iche'(traditional mayan language used in some parts of Guatemala) For this 3 country we visit a large amount of cities (x10) to captured the exceptional urban soundscape of central america.
