Funny, this is a nice recording of course, but I had expected Italian fireworks to be a bit more ... expressive ... spectacular ... dangerous even. Especially after the soccer related outbursts that were to be heard in my city last year Very Happy

you know Jan, I did not venture outside that night so I just recorded what I could from the windowsill of my kitchen Wink I recorded for half an hour and concentrated the salient parts down to a minute and a half with my son Jarik saying things like: "look dad" and wanting to explode his fireworks on the garden of the neighbour, downstairs Laughing

That's more like it Very Happy (so it's just a lack of language skills on my side I guess)

while assembling the piece I made sure to leave enough "sonic room" for Jarik's words to be comprehensible (for me, at least) hoping to be able to let the listener feel his excitement besides the language barrier.

Very nice! I really enjoy the "cozy-ness" of the room.. The nice thing about your track is that it really has the same potential as a photograph, listening to it over a few years time will give great nostalgic value to the recording! Incomparable to composed, improvised or generated music..

Smile great work, I'll be putting my small piece up soon!

Very nice indeed! Very Happy
I don´t understand italian, but I can sympathize with taking out the neighboors garden.
Nice roomy recording BTW. The production is very good.

thanks, I edited the original recording with Logic (see the picture above). the final mixdown was imported in Metasynth only for that pitch shift effect at the end. I did not want to mangle the original recording too much in order to save the feeling of that night.

Sounds a bit like New Year's Eve in Florida, but fireworks are illegal so they use guns. One can celebrate the New Year and take out a pesky neighbor at the same time. Wink

Just happened that I had my computer's sound card patched to my studio monitors... then, unsuspecting I started up your track!

What a jolt! And... quite a workout for the speakers.

Well... M80 type explosives are outlawed here in Missouri.

However... dry ice and water in a large plastic coke bottle does wonders. Very Happy

every new year's eve, here in Italy, there are hundreds of injuried people because of illegal fireworks. when I was a kid the arrival of the new years was celebrated throwing old stuff out of the windows down in the middle of the streets (I don't know where people parked their cars that night). I still remember seeing 2 guys walking down the streets at midnight using a kitchen table as helmet trying to dodge plates, bowls, chairs flying everywhere. unforgettable Shocked

Yep, pretty easy to tell the sound of an illegal explosive:

It an explosion's reverb time is 8 seconds when everything else has no reverb, it is most likely illegal.
