LAKES 1 2 3

I’m in the final stages of the next HISSandaROAR Library, an ambience library of lakes which should see release late next week. Back in July last year I went on a road trip down south for two months, prior to heading to Japan, and have always wanted to capture some of the pristine lakes in the South Island. Not only are they incredibly beautiful & peaceful environments to visit, they also tend to be quiet & isolated recording locations…
I’ve taken the same approach as with my BEACHES Ambience Library i.e. recording each location multitrack, using MKH8040 ORTF pair, an MKH70 super directional spaced pair and a DPA 4060 spaced omni pair…

 

 

The first lake I recorded was Lake Pukaki, which is down in Central Otago and very close to Mt Cook, New Zealands highest mountain, in fact to get to Mt Cook you drive right around Lake Pukaki…

Lakes!

 

Next stop was Queenstown & we drove up to the top of the lake, to a tiny town called Glenorchy where I recorded the lake from a small jetty. I first recorded waterlaps underneath the jetty…

Lakes!

 

Then set my mics pointed at this pontoon, which was providing a nice boat-like water lap…

Lakes!

 

Next stop was TeAnau, as we were on our way into Milford Sound…

Lakes!
