Maple Fire, Yellowstone National Park, 12PM
Creator: Jerrett, Jennifer
Description: Sounds of very active wildfire
Notes: In this recording, you'll hear the fire as it moves up a hill through dense lodgepole pine. It was made from the opposite slope across the drainage in an area that burned earlier in the week. Recorded around noon, in this clip the fire's behavior is totally different than earlier in the day. Even though the microphone is far away from the flames, you hear the bassy roar of it: the power of its low acoustic energy. In fact, one of the things that struck me while making this recording was that I could feel the rumbling in my body as it came up through the ground.
