    Microrecordings, Sampling with David Dunn

    Posted on August 17th, 2005

    I was listening to Living on Earth, which is a podcast focused on Sound Journalism, and thought this was awesome. David Dunn does microrecordings and had a segment on Living On Earth which documented the sounds of a beetle infestation in a piñon tree.

    David Dunn, stands nearby at the edge of a grove of needleless, dead gray piñon that look like the backdrop for a Halloween play. Like me, he wears headphones and has a recording machine slung on his shoulder. But the device connected to his recorder is a microphone like none I’ve ever seen.
