Last night it was cold in Adelaide town, and there was a decent fall of rain to boot. Around 10pm I decided to capitalise on this with my current recording combo of glass jar, condom and stereo condensor microphone (to minidisc.) I recorded about 30 minutes of the freezing rain shower as it slowly passed over our backyard. I’ve posted a short excerpt of the recording as the shower begins. I love the purcussive effect of rain striking the membrane and the subtle resonances of the falling rain in the distance.
