A Recordist's Guide to Capturing Iceland's Immersive Soundscapes Specific notes about Iceland as a recording location
Iceland gave us more sounds and opportunities per day than anywhere else we have ever recorded. There is no such thing as a perfect field recording location, but Iceland provided more than its fair share of goldilocks situations. As a field recordist, you are always avoiding air traffic. Due to its low population, Iceland has relatively few local flights and due to its northerly location, few international flights pass overhead so one would be hard-pressed to find a better location in that regard. Iceland, while mostly devoid of airplane noises, provided its own unique form of air traffic in the form of geese. While we are used to looking at air radar maps, we had to start looking at topographical maps to avoid low lying fields near rivers or we would find ourselves in the middle of noisy, nesting geese.
