Portable Sound Recording over Winter Break

During my trip to Denver for winter break, I was fortunate to travel with our digital pmd kit. Just from working with old tools and things inside the house and garage, I worked on building my own sound effects library. For example, scraping glasses, clanging metal platters, using a variety of tubes all produced good sounds. I recorded a wealth of crowd noises from the New Year's celebration in the mountains to the absurd environment of Denver's Casa Bonita. The experience helped me to think of new things to try in the foley room too.
