One of my main ideas always was to find most unusual sounds to make rhythms with or from. One of the sounds that always fascinated me, was a sound of fire, burning, crackling wood. Thanks to a cottage with its fireplace, I finally got to recording samples I needed to make this fantasy a reality. I have recorded very nice fire from 4 distances, from maybe 2 metres to as close as was still healthy for my mic :-).
I have also recorded fireplace itself, its iron banister, some barbicue tools (shovel, broach) and also sounds of chunks of wood to add something sonically more palpable to the library. The outcome is strange and surely not usual. But... maybe some of you will be able to use it in some fiery track ! What?s in ?
