Urban Crows is a library full of interesting sounds of single crows and swarms. These proud birds deserve a lot more attention than they usually get. They are amazingly intelligent, social and by no means aggressive or monotonous when it comes to their communication capabilities.
The library evolved throughout winter 2015/16 and was taken from the attic of a house surrounded by trees were the crows frequently stayed overnight. So it was a great pleasure to record them arriving in the evenings as well as hearing them chatting during the dawn.
They have a huge arsenal of clearly distinguishable single caws, funny sighs or nervous screams that often evolved to a huge cluster of noises that became stronger when the church bells began to ring and the sun came up.
All takes are recorded in Mid-Side stereo, with Sennheiser MKH-70 shotgun for a strong mid-signal and AKG-C394B for the ambience. The total playing time of the library is approx. 1h 30min.
With background experience in video editing, I understand what is needed when it come to sound for TV production. With this and my love for sound I founded Detunized in 2009. Under the Detunized brand I release themed sound libraries that are handy in size and will allow the sound editor to quickly find what they are looking for whilst working on a production with tight schedules.
