Stethoscope Recordings

I buit a microphone using a stethoscope because it is difficult to record body sounds with the contact mic.

Here is a picture of the stetho-mic:


It uses two electret mic elements, which are extremely cheap (less than a dollar) and they sound great.

Contact Mic Excursion

| No Comments

I hardly made it out of my kitchen, there were so many interesting sounds to be documented.
1. I put the mic in the toilet to record what the toilet hears.
2. I froze the mic in an ice cube and recorded the sounds of it melting in a bowl of water.
3. Placed the mic in the basin of my stainless steel sink and placed speakers on either side of the sink and waited for feedback/resonance.

Contact Mic pressed against a variety of basic tools around the apartment. Some periphery noise came in through the recording, but the microphone still carried the sound well.
