Spirit Falls was recorded at Whitefish Falls which flows through a narrow fault in the mystical white crystalline La Cloche mountains. The area has an "other world" feel and awareness. Spirit Falls exudes a particular ambience and unique vibration.
I was there on Labour Day weekend 2005. It had been a dry and hot summer which caused water levels to be extra low. These levels created a unique chance to walk over the rocks of the falls that are usually under water. The darkness on some of the rocks seen in the photo was caused by water stains. It was a breezy day, but I found a rocky crevice close to one part of the falls that provided a wind break and also a recording location that was a few feet from the rushing waters.
The recording is of a broadband randomized noise that encompasses the entire audio spectrum with variations caused by the water flows and splashes which creates a mesmerizing rhythm that plays up and down in pitch.
This is perfect for creating a relaxing ambience, hiding other noises, meditation, or for sleeping. A slow 10 second fade-in at the beginning and a slow fade-out at the end gives a smooth peaceful transition. Edited digital field recording encoded at 192 kps. Length: 1:01:41 File size: 84.7 MB.
