Mediterranean Summertime includes 120 selections dedicated to the life and the atmosphere of both glitz and off-beat Mediterranean islands, during summertime. We follow tourists in well known busy bays, as well as reaching out quieter destinations recommended by locals, and we managed to capture:
- Crowded and deserted beaches with Aegean sea waves breaking on sandy and pebble coasts, pounding on the shore and washing over rocks.
- Port ambiences with close and distant perspective fishing motorboats.
- Sounds inside a ferry transporting you to nearby islands or back to the mainland, loading cars and passengers, arriving and departing.
Apart from nature soundscapes, the collection features ambiences from traditional taverns and restaurants full of people chatting in various languages and different dialects. Everything blends beautifully together, with some distinctively traditional music in the background, the sound of village life of inhabitants, street sellers and tourists passing by through the boardwalk.
Sufficient Time Scale Variation
The collection comes with 120 files ranging from 2 seconds to 8 minutes in length for a total of 320 minutes.
Post Production And Curation Applied
This library is recorded using both stealth and control field recording techniques. To record under real-life conditions, we couldn’t always capture sounds with the same ideal settings that the controlled method allows. In all those cases, post-production and curation work has led to a fine outcome.
