A couple of new additions to the FSM.

As I was finishing some sound design work for an upcoming theatre production I found myself digging through some archived field recordings from a weekend trip to Normanville in July 2011.

It was a productive trip at the time as it was my first proper research trip to survey sound environments on the Fleurieu; and though I only covered a small area of territory (mostly around my hometown, Normanville) it was an important exercise which ultimately led to the creation of the FSM six months later.

Both these additions are fairly simple recordings of sites which are sonically consistent and generally uneventful, but are important documents of sites previously not featured on the site.  As these are recordings made on the old Edirol-HR09 (with problematic signal-to-noise at low volumes) there is discrete hiss on the very quiet Second Valley Forest recording.  This discrete noise is the principle reason no EQ or gain has been applied to this recording.
