Instinct Primal – The Sound Doctor

Here are some pictures from a “Machines Of War” field recording session. 
I used these sounds in the opening track of the Giant Fish album.

I was using a phantom powered AKG C411 PP contact microphone for most of the machine recordings.

 Frequency range is 10 Hz to 18,000 Hz.
 This makes it possible to easily find the right place to capture and record those very deep bass sounds. 

The microphone was designed mainly for acoustic instruments but can be quickly attached with an adhesive compound to almost any surface, and the frequency range is truly amazing!

After these mono sounds were recorded I first layered and sequenced them to the original beat of the machine.
Then I filtered, equalized and panned the tracks to create the final soundscape.

I will let you decide if the machine is good or evil.
It would be nice to hear what you think.
