Tomorrow: my first major field recording session in a while. I’m excited to get outdoors to discover this new place and pleased to get out from behind a camera, something which seems to take up more of my time these days.
So, got the trusty old gear together along with a brand new DAD6001 for one of my DPA 4060’s, very kindly sent out by Ralph at Sound Network as a replacement for a faulty unit…and various dry bags!
I’ll be logging my recordings on an iPad mini, so will take some snaps if anything unusual turns up, but this is the first of several sessions in Shipley over the coming weeks for an ‘audio tour’ that I’m producing, so will write more as the project starts to come together.
I’ve eventually found some time to start consolidating and re-organising the archives to make available a collection of previous field recordings. It’s a small collection at the moment and takes a while to go through QC and approval, but I’ll be editing and adding more sounds in a steady stream so please check back from time to time. Click the ants to go have a listen…

I only discovered this wonderful festival and competition last week and have been rattling my brains for ideas ever since. This years theme is ‘Appetite’. For more info and to find out how to enter, check out their site:
I generally have a huge appetite for most things; food, music, sound, adventure, wine, nature, cities, cycling, travelling and specifically, due my current proximity to the sea, FISH & CHIPS with MUSHY PEAS! Hmm, maybe there’s an idea in that…
