Recording School Kids Sound Effects in Vietnam
While on my road trip across Vietnam from Ho Chi Minh City to Hanoi, I’ve been staying at many hotels along the way. After stopping in Cao Bang for the night, I was woken up in the early morning by the sound of school children laughing and yelling. Without realizing it, I booked a hotel literally next door to an elementary school!
Sound Compilation “School Kids Sound Effects – Vietnam”
In other countries, this ruckus probably would have had neighbors complaining about the noise level. However, in Vietnam, it’s just a typical morning soundtrack. For the tourists, the screaming of dozens of kids isn’t the ideal alarm clock. As for me, it was a fitting soundscape to capture!
With a spring in my step, I set up my recorders near the window which was only 5 meters away from the school and around 30 meters away from the playground. For this recording, I used a Zoom F8n with Usi Pro by Lom and the new 360-degree Zoom H3-VR (AmbiX format.)
