seems strange that we constantly strive to capture the perfect recording of=
 our subject notwithstanding that mostly such subjects exist within a sonic=
 mire of man made audio pollution. I try to record the natural voices of bu=
zzards, ravens, red kites and rooks among others, but the times they seem m=
ost vocal when I am able to get my kit set up in the right place at the rig=
ht time, is also the time of the most unwanted intrusion. But wait a moment=
, this is the world we and our subjects live in now, there is no perfect ti=
me to catch their cries and calls without the unwanted sounds of mans prese=
nce. So, why try to remove them from a film soundtrack. If where you are is=
 noisy why try to portray it as otherwise. If you don't want cicadas, don't=
 film in Greece, let them sing their song and film elsewhere.
