Filling up the balloon was loud. Painfully, mind-numbingly, and gloriously, worth-staying-up-all-night-loud. And, despite my default all-access pass, I still got a little too up close and personal. In this recording of the beginning of the inflation, you can hear me walking right up to the balloon and (sigh), being asked to step back.
Luckily, it got a lot louder. Here’s a short sample. The recording is binaural and has some nice spatialized effects. Unfortunately, I don’t think that even binaurals can effectively reproduce the massive height of the sound when it is experienced in person.
