Description:Bundles hru_1725a to 1725e contain various recordings of the Pear Story. 1725a is innovation as the speaker is watching the video; 1725b immediately after watching it; 1725c after some time but on the same day; 1725d, narrated by someone who heard the story from the original speaker; and 1725e, discussions and questions and answers regarding the events in the story. In 1725f the original speaker pretends as though the story happened long ago. We are not sure how successful the 'pretending' is, therefore it has to be used with caution. Fairly quiet village surroundings; indoors. Micropones: Audio Technica 803B lavalier omnidirectional condenser microphones - 2, one for each stereo channel, both attached to speaker's collar. Recorded on Marantz PMD 661 MK2 solid state recorder, Recording Specs: Sample rate 48000 Hz, 32 bit float.
