Sounds are neat.  

Piano Pedal Squeak

Squeaking rubber soled shoes on a piano pedal and hearing some resonance. Best with headphones.

Morning on Kissimmee Prairie Preserve

Some morning (~7:00) sounds from our Kissimmee Prairie Preserve zero-light-pollution campsite. Mostly some loud birds and tree wind environmental sounds among muffled talking. A bit humid in the morning, not terrible. The field of stars seen with the naked eye was phenomenal. A few open clusters and Jupiter (and four of its moons) were seen with the telescope as midnight neared.

Picture from sunset the day before.

Skewer through bike spokes

I was replacing a flat tire on a bike. It was upside down. I found a long wooden skewer.

Hurricane Irma Sounds Montage

A montage of audio clips recorded during our sit through of hurricane Irma. It chronicles our waiting through the many awesome (and occasionally concerning) sounds we would hear during and after this massive storm that passed over Florida.

Accompanying this, is another longer episode with the entire longer recordings of the heavy rain and winds though the trees and bushes.

Hurricane Irma Rain and Wind Sounds

A longer edit of full recordings of just the calming heavy rain and winds though the trees and bushes during Hurricane Irma (with some quiet background sounds too).

This is supplemental to the montage.

Running down Lassen's Cinder Cone trail

The sound of running down Lassen Volcanic’s Cinder Cone. My phone was in my pocket, the sound can still get loud. The way down felt like having half gravity on me. It was incredibly fun. I stopped on the way down to video the rest of the family, they took some time to get started so I cut the waiting out. You can hear their tracks get closer to me. You will also hear some encouraging words to hikers slowly making there way up. We end with some thoughts on the experience.
