Cracking Lake Ice

Cracking Lake Ice

Date recorded: December 23, 2023

Duration – 13:05

At the onset of winter, when the temperature reaches below -20 degrees celsius for the first time, the newly forming ice on the lake will shift and crack and you can hear this eerie low howling sound echoing in the distance and also below your feet. This is a very subtle audioscape that was recorded on the ice on a very quiet night on the island, and is best experienced with headphones

I was recording the frogs at the swamp in the evening as the ducks and geese were coming back from feeding and settling in for the night. You can hear them in the background splashing in the lake and flying close overhead. You can hear the honking sounds of the geese echoing through swamp. Lovely track.
