sc 219 “Abstract Audio 4.”

November 13, 2011

Toppie presents Abstract Audio 4, an experiment in sound.  It has no meaning, implied or otherwise.  It is just sound as sound.  But as you listen, I encourage you to allow yourself to visualize whatever you will — there’s no right or wrong thing you could visualize.  Write and tell me what YOU visualized (if anything!).

Interesting note:  There’s a sound that continues for quite a bit at the beginning.  It sounds like a vibration — a tapping or a scratching.  It is actually the amplified sound of a male spider drumming his foot on a female spider’s web in order to entice her to mate! End of interesting note.

Please to remember that in honor of NoPodPoMo, Toppie is spending all of November at his computer from 9:30 PM to 10:30 PM (EST) in order to be available on Skype to talk to YOU!  Connect with me via my Skype handle: “smellcast”.

sc 166 “Night of the Peepers.”

May 2, 2011

Toppie ventures outside into the night to capture the sound of Spring Peepers.

Noun 1. Spring Peeper  – a small brown tree toad having a shrill call heard near wetlands of eastern United States and Canada in early spring.  The Hyla crucifer tree toad  – arboreal amphibians usually having adhesive disks at the tip of each toe; of southeast Asia and Australia and America.  Genus Hyla – the type genus of the Hylidae; tree toads.

Toppie did not know that peepers are toads, not frogs (he finds this hard to believe, but what does he know?), but he grew up hearing the creatures sing their once-a-year song until he left Podunk Junction for the big city of Rochester, NY.

As heard in the Smellcast, episode 157, Toppie actually has a Zoom recorder — but truth to tell — he hasn’t yet learned how to use it.  So instead, one fine Spring night just days ago, Toppie grabbed his trusty old video camera to capture a wonderful night sound-scape, switching back and forth from the camera’s condenser mic to a shot-gun mic.

Listen for the trill of an unknown creature — likely some kind of frog (most likely not a Peeper — or maybe like the Peeper — another toad species).  A goose flies by and then fade to silence.
