Soothing Sounds of the Ocean, Montauk Point

Listen!

 

 

 

I gathered this audio in full stereo on the beach at Montauk Point State Park with the Zoom H2 field recorder.  It's the absolute furthest point east on Long Island, affectionately dubbed "The End".  Despite this park being well off the beaten path, it is still quite difficult to record the sounds of nature without some man made noise being picked up.  I did a rough edit with Garageband to cut out a few airplanes and even a helicopter.  

Sometimes I daydream about creating my own album of nature sounds.  I've even started the project a few times before breaking the silence with the click of my camera shutter.  If I ever plan to finish, I need to get back to it in a hurry as quiet places are becoming nearly impossible to find.
