Hzandbits Sound Effects releases Northern Italy - rural sound effects ambiances
By: Hzandbits Sound Effects
It was recorded in July 2019, and features ambiance recordings from just outside the small village of Entratico, near Bergamo, Italy.
This is hill-country, with meandering gravel-roads, small farms, sheep-bells and lots of crickets. In fact, in this terrain, insects seem to be the only sound sources which are always near; everything else, from dogs and roosters, to church-bells and airplanes, seems always to be distant.
Most recordings are from around Entratico, with a few from other locations, such as near-by Monte Isola.
These sounds were recorded before the COVID-19 Pandemic swept across the area, with the local authorities initialing a lock-down. Although there are not many crowd-sounds in this collection, there is definitely a liveliness which later went silent.
You get 22 separate files - recorded in 24bit/96kHz A-B stereo. All files come with embedded metadata, and are compliant with the Universal Category System - the emerging standard for naming sound files, as developed by leading Hollywood audio professionals.
