Rotorua Field Recording

This mud pool is easily accessible & free to visit – the only problem can be tourists… So you have to be patient, most people only stay for 5 minutes to take a few photos… I set up my mics & stayed for an hour or so…



The hotel we stayed at had mineral pools (which is why we chose this particular one, although most do in Rotorua) and while the primary motive was to have a hot bath, it turned out it was a source for some unusual sounds. The pipe supplying the very hot mineral water almost sounded like it was vomiting!!





While on the way South I stopped at my favourite mud pool yesterday & recorded about 40 minutes of gloopy boiling mud… Will upload some to soundcloud once I get all my recordings transferred….


My Rycotes all smell of sulphur!
