EPISODE 1 | FRAGMENTS OF EXTINCTION
Stress test of the electro-acoustic instrumentation at Urbino's Sauna
The project "Fragments of Extinction - Ecuador 2016" opens his work with the final stress test of the electro-acoustic instrumentation. December 21, 2015, the entire audio technology chain that will be used in the Amazon has been connected in a sauna/turkish bath and subjected to rising temperature and humidity (up to 100% humidity at 33° C) to simulate average conditions and spikes for the use inside the equatorial forest. All equipment, consisting of highly sophisticated 3D microphones ever brought before at the tropics, experimental microphones and multi-channel recorders, reacted well to these last tests before departure took place on January 23.
