Abandoned Courtyard Ambience! Leaking Water Pipe & Church Bells

by freetousesounds



Malta is one of the countries with the least amount of rain and having over 300 sunny days, it's truly a sunshine paradise. One night we had a very light rainfall. I mean very light but still enough to fill up the drainage around our building in Valetta.

The drainage and one of the water pipes run into the courtyards from the 6th floor. We live in one of these impressive buildings that are over 400 years old on the fourth floor.
High ceilings, huge corridor doors and if you walk up and down the stairway it already creates this natural haunting reverb.

Many of the apartments are abandoned or just not rented out. Alone in our apartment complex are 12 apartments and only 3 are rented out.

The water pipe that runs down into the courtyard is broken and after I realized that the rain stopped, it doesn't take long and the drainage and pipes are empty as well.

I opened our huge kitchen window and started recording these very spooky rain dripping sound effects. The courtyard is surrounded by four buildings that are all connected with each other. This is one of the reasons for the interesting reverb.
In this sound library, I also included two church bells that started ringing in the distance.
