In mid 2018 I took a short boat trip with a friend from Wellington to Matiu/Somes Island, the largest of the islands in the middle of Wellington’s Harbour.
I discovered on arrival that I had left my Sound Devices Mix Pre 6 running overnight and had drained its life completely, luckily I had a Tascam DR44WL on hand as a contingency measure. With high spirits and bags full of gear we couldn’t use we set off on a 5 hour hike over and around the island, this sample pack is made up of some of the sounds we found.
Some sounds included are:
Oyster catcher wings flapping
Assorted wood and metal hits recorded inside of the concrete gun emplacements on top of the island.
Wooden jetty creaking
