Recording my activities.
I am recording my activities regularly these days. I'm trying to make a sound scape of a day in my life. It is proving more challenging than I originally thought it would be. I tried to record myself pouring boiling water into my tea pot. You can hear the sound of the water as it fills the pot. The sound gets higher. I used to use these liquid level indicators that beep but I hate them. I use funnels and measure the water I put into the kettle so not too much goes into the pot. But, when I recorded that sound it first sounded like nothing. I was too far away or my mike was. Then I put it really close and it sounded like a waterfall. Not like pouring tea at all. And when I have interesting encounters, I'm not recording. If I get some interesting things, I will share it here.
