Direct mp3 download or play:  4th of July Ambience 2009
This was recorded with same setup as in 2008, except the sound was recorded onto my Sony PCM-D50 digital recorder. In addition, here is the first 4th of July recording from my backyard in Seattle. This was the last recording I made on this setup before a squirrel chewed through one of the cables leading to a microphone. See more about it here.
