‘Yamaha Frogs’ – Cherating wetlands
‘Yamaha Frogs’ – Cherating wetlands … mid 90’s
‘Yamaha Frogs’ – Cherating wetlands … 15.5mins
This recording was made in the mid 90’s at Cherating … a sleepy little seaside village on the Central East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia.
The scene: Middle of a monsoon thunderstorm, middle of the night, middle of a narrow road with compact wetlands all around.
Umbrella in hand ….. the frogs etc were digitally “captured” onto a minidisc recorder via a custom-made quasi-binaural stereo system using omni boundary mikes built into a hat [above the ears].
There are about 5 or 6 different varieties of frog all vying for attention … occasionally all together in chorus.
In the background you might hear some of the locals trying their luck fishing in the small river behind the wetlands.
