Geotag Icon Soundscape: Island waves

audio, soundscapes posted by on Nov 13th, 2009

Recording the wavesWe recorded this at low tide on Orango island – a stunning and sparsely populated island of deserted beaches and mangrove forests in Guinea-Bissau’s Bijagos archipelago. The sea was remarkably calm during our stay on the island, and the sounds of the lapping waves at an ebbing low tide struck us as especially gentle.

Date and time recorded: 17:43 local time, 11th November 2009
Location: Orango, Bijagos archipelago, Guinea-Bissau (view on map)
Equipment: Sennheiser MKH40 to Fostex FR2LE
