Various nature recordings by Bernhard Kroeger



  • About 10 miles southwest of Hana, Hawaii is Kipahulu and Whispering Winds Bamboo

    Whispering Winds Bamboo

    On a recent vacation to Maui I had hoped to make an ambient recording of the wind moving through a bamboo forest.  On the early afternoon of November 21, 2010 I received permission from Rich, one of the owners of this co-op to record on their property.  My wife found an area that had open clumps of black bamboo

    that was creaking and clacking in strengthening gusts.  I set up my home made Jecklin disc

    with a pair of MHK 20′s and recorded for 57 minutes when the wind died.

    Here is a 7.5 minute snippet.

    I reduced some of the rumble (100Hz), but otherwise left things alone.   At 59 sec a bird can be heard which I could not see nor identify by voice.  If you can,  please let me know.
