Archive for the Category field recording
Sorry for the gap since I last shared anything but a combination of work/home life, coupled with a sudden inability to come up with anything new, has laid me low and kept me quiet.
In an attempt to kick start something I took my Zoom H4n to Soho Gardens and recorded the sounds of a sunny spring lunchtime as I wandered around. When I later tried to create a sonic mood to layer over the snippets I’d grabbed, nothing would work. So in a bit of a cheat, as per my last track, I looked back at an old piece and sampled a few little loops from it (Flotsam again!) to create a lazy, meandering feel to the overall piece.
I hope you like it?
This v.experimental piece is a recording taken yesterday of the automatic doors of a supermarket in Addlestone, Surrey. It’s a really amazing sound and I can’t think why they’ve chosen such noisy, if harmonic motors.
I’ve simply layered three versions of the recording, each warped a little in pitch, to thicken things, and slightly effected the overall mix with some eq and a little reverb.
I hear a sound that reminds me of childhood days playing in tower block lifts, with the sound of the wind whistling through the elevator shafts in which we travelled along with the clunks, clicks and the singing electrical motors.
Hope you like it?
Just a little announcement to let you know that my latest release ‘hiemal’ is now available to download for free from Bandcamp. Grab it while you can as Bandcamp does limit the number of free versions.
Here is another piece made for the Disquiet Junto project that I have been persuaded to share here also. Lots of lovely feedback about this piece has also ensured that this track is the final one on my next release (more of which will follow later today).
