Long standing stream for Locus Sonus.
The microphone hangs in a tree in the back yard of a house in South London.
Original Raspbery Pi B mono installation with Icicle soundcard and Superlux ECM999 measurement microphone using asoundCamp disk image developed in collaboration with Locus Sonus, Udo Noll, Max Baraitser and others.
The yard is a small patch of trees and vegetation surrounded by buildings and roads. There is a chicken run and a beehive.
Planes fly over on the way to Heathrow International Airport, starting around 4 in the morning.
Sounds from chickens, nearby schoolyard at recess, the Cambria Pub, adjoining houses and backyards, a neighbour playing drums in his shed. Traffic. Wrens, woodpigeons, goldfinches, starlings, blackbirds, morning and evening, especially in Spring. Sirens. Helicopters. Planes. Domestic sounds.
A graph showing sound levels from the overflight of aircraft on the approach to Heathrow International Airport is available from the soundmap in collaboration with Christian Nold.
