Bamboo Forest Wind

Finding my way up a muddy path on an Island in the Pacific is an ideal condition for natural listening. A growing cacophony ebbs and flows as the trail and nearby river weave near and far from each other. Up a steep hill, the water suddenly grows faint. I can hear the wind overhead. Drumming along is the thick bamboo grove that seems to have sprung out of nowhere. I placed two Sennheiser Microphones on a wide stereo bar as far from the trail as I dared to go.
