Hockey Rink / Practice

Filed under: Hand of Man, Ice, Night, Sound Recording, Winter — collin j örthner @ 4:52 am


The hockey rink across the street from our home is used virtually every evening throughout the winter months. One night I was working on my computer and was listening to the shouts of kids and the sound of pucks hitting the boards and decided to make a recording of the sounds. I went out and started my recording just after the coach blew his whistle ending the formal practice. The sound clip I have posted is of 20 or so 12 year old kids just messing around for the last few minutes before their parents drive them home.

This audio clip was featured on PRI’s “The World” radio program as well as on the “Quiet American – One Minute Vacation”  website a year ago. (scroll down to January 21st)
