1. Just recorded beautiful resonant thunder, strong peaks @ 1kHz 2kHz, consistent throughout whole storm, any idea what could be causing this?

  2. A short recording of Gregory Jolivet’s beautiful 5-time waltz “Main Dans La Main” played in C on my Vio gurdy, after a post-travel maintenance session and string change:

    I’m now using a steel core, stainless steel wound low G chanter. It has a slightly harsher sound than the synthetic+silver strings I was using before, and is prone to attacks with lots of high partials, but is much more durable.
