Greyhouse Coffee Co. – August 15th, 2009

Today, while at Greyhouse, we decided to do a binaural recording, along with a time lapse video (known by us as a BTL). It’s great to see the hustle and the bustle around campus again. Enjoy!

Lafayette Farmers Market – August 8th, 2009

This morning we decided to do some binaural recording the Farmers Market. We also recorded some time lapse video of people’s feet. There was also a great treat in the form of Danny Weiss blowing some early morning jazz into market air. It was a great way to start a Saturday.

Binaural Microphones Fixed!

Ever since I started recording with my binaural microphones, I thought the quality was a little poor.

This weekend, something possessed me to make another set to see if the recordings could be better. I still had several WM-61A capsules from my original purchase, so I decided to give it a shot.

Here are two audio files. One was created using the old set, and the other using the new set. Both were recorded with the Zoom H2:

Old microphones (WARNING: Some crackles in the audio)

Don’t forget to use headphones for the full effect. I apologize for the slight crackling on the old microphone recording. I think the connection had gone bad as well.

I’m not sure as to what caused the difference—soldering? Bad capsules? I’m just happy the result is much better!

Death by Consumerism; Abated and Asphyxiated for Low Prices

Wal-Mart Death by Trampling (Consumerism)

Today we found a binaural recording in our inbox. It was made minutes before the 34-year-old, Long Island, NY Wal-Mart employee was trampled to death this past Friday. The conversations that took place were very interesting. Listen and experience it for yourself.

This audio, like others in the binaural family, is best experienced with headphones.
