In addition to the Nobska foghorn, the West Chop foghorn, the local bell buoy, and very calm waves on the shore and rip-rap can be heard on this recording. My first documentation of the sounds of Nobska Point.

A portion of this recording is featured on Rich Bennett's excellent intrumental EP "Music for Underwater Supermarkets," found here:

Recorded using a Sony ECM-MS907 stereo microphone borrowed from Nick, and a Sharp MT-MD831 Minidisc recorder.

***If you, too, would like to remix Nobska's foghorn field recordings like those on "Nobska Remixes," you may. I would like to keep this going as long as there is interest. Use *only* Nobska as source material, manipulate it however you like. Make it available online for free download with a link back to the "Nobska Remixes" album page. Let me know it's up and I'll add a link to its page from the "Nobska Remixes" info section. Have fun! I look forward to what may come.
