An example of the Lombard effect. As the plane is passing directly above and the noise level reaches its peak, the vocal behavior of the animals (squirrels, chipmunks, birds) becomes frantic. When the plane passes and the levels drop, the rate and volume of the animal's calls is noticeably less. Recorded in XY at 24/96.

The sounds of the park compete with the surrounding traffic and wind... musicians perform in the gazebo, children play cricket, and pigeons make pigeon sounds.

Mechanical and oral anthrophony : several periods of traffic sounds (cars, trucks, motorbikes, bikes, even a skateboard). And in the last part of the recording, a child yelling in midst all the commotion.

Red-winged Blackbirds awaking in the tall grasses and trees around the pond of Parc Jarry in Montreal. Overhead, an atmospheric cacophony of gulls flying and crying in the dark gray cloud-covered sky. In the background, the constant traffic of St. Laurent Blvd that runs along the park. Sounds like being at home. Recorded with an MS pair of Sennheiser MKH50/MKH30 into a Sound Devices 633, on the early morning of April 12th, 2017. /// Carouges à épaulettes se réveillant dans les hautes herbes...
