Stratosphere - Location Recording Details at Pillar Point Harbor

Stratosphere began with a live improvisation I recorded in the field to mix sound making apps and live ambient sounds. Using Google Maps, I am able to take you to the exact place I recorded the backing track yesterday (2012/11/15).

Lots of great stuff going with active birds, boats launching, and other maritime sounds. In fact, you can hear the Pillar Point Harbor fog horn in the background pretty well through out the track. It sounds like a big low organ chord. I parked right here in the circle. Rolled down the back windows and turned on the Zoom H1 recorder to capture the ambient activity. Other sounds added live from various iPhone and Droid apps. Click this link to open the Google Maps 360 view of the recording location if the widget below doesn't work -
