Dreiländereck by Ernst Karel released today on VQR Static

Recorded on the River Rhine at the border of Switzerland, France, and Germany, near the shipping port at Kleinhüningen, Basel.

For the first half, the left microphone points across the river towards France, and the right across the entrance to the harbor towards Germany, while the microphones stand in Switzerland. For the second half the mics have rotated clockwise, with the left now pointing towards across the water towards Germany and the right across the harbor towards the shipping activities in Switzerland.

(Schoeps cardioid microphones in ORTF stereo configuration with Sound Devices recorder)
