Location: Cohoes Falls, Cohoes NY
Date: May 12, 2012
Time: 7:00pm
Equipment Used: 2 AKG C1000S, MAudio Fast Track Pro, Macbook Pro
Setting: Stereo (stationary)
Recorder: Baird Buchanan (Claymation)

Description: It was a beautiful Saturday evening when I started recording the falls with the sun on its way down. I was able to capture some wildlife as well as some visitors enjoying the view which all livened up the atmosphere even though the drone of the falls is the dominant sound. I ended up pointing one mic at the actual falls and the other at 180 degrees towards the large hyrdo release jet to really capture the roar of standing between these two massive forces of water.

This recording is also featured in the new Claymation track “Down Bubble.”
