Taking my normal morning walk in the mornings but on the 8th there had been snow, and, as I was walking the snow started again. I love the stillness that snowfall brings. I also enjoy the crunch of it underfoot.
I hope …
I got a new coffee bean grinder, which inspired me to record the entire process of making a cup of coffee from start to finish.
Whilst we are all in lock down again finding interesting sounds is not that easy. Everyday sounds are all around us and sometimes comforting, sometimes not.
This is just me walking to the shops and back again. But I …
Sheffield Park was wet yesterday, but even so it was lovely to walk around it. I ventured into a part of the park that I've never been in before. It …
RHS Wisley is open again. I went for a walk around this lovely garden and recorded some of the fountains there. You'll find 3 distinct clips in this episode.
I hope you enjoy the sounds.
Some morning birdsong from my lockdown world. Quieter than it has been for years, but not for much longer I'm afraid.
This time from the various appliances inside my living room.
Something a little different. I thought I'd record the electromagnetic sounds of the various appliances in my kitchen. Some interesting sounds I think. You might agree, you might not.
This was taken back in February at the Troy exhibition at the British Museum.
Given everything that's happening in the world I have noticed how much quieter the environment is, and that bird song has noticeably increased. Which is lovely. Here's a few minutes of where I live.
I was mowing the grass at paths at the allotment and I thought that the mower made a quite nice sound. So, of course, I recorded it. Sadly only briefly. Because I had to get on with actually mowing the grass!
This recording was taken a week before Christmas in the Whitgift Shopping Centre in Croydon. There was a school singing in the middle of the centre. …
Another recording of Surrey Street Market. This one taken a few days before Christmas. It wasn't a weekend though, hence it isn't as busy as it could …
I love the sounds of children playing happily. This recording was made recently and is a sound that always lifts my mood. So I thought I'd share it with you.
This is a little different. I recently purchased a device called an "Ether". The device converts the electromagnetic spectrum to audible sound. It can make for a quite interesting experience. This recording is of my …
I really love this annual local event. It's a lovely community focus, and they always have a brass band.
I've recorded here on many occasions, but I like it, and I like markets in general.
I think that this is some kind of grinding stone for flour or something. I noticed it at the Weald and Downland open air museum near Chichester just before Easter. It is a lovely place, and I'd thoroughly recommend it.
Another recording from about 3 years ago. This is the sound of the Thames under Blackfriars Bridge.
And another 3 year old recording. This time from Edinburgh. It was during festival time, and this guy was really good.
This was a very windy day in 2016 on Lyme Beach. A lovely day though with some great wave.
If you know these fountains you'll know that they work on a fluctuating rhythm. They make a really interesting sound.
This was recorded in March 2016.
And another older recording from 2016. This was just the sound of a building site that I enjoyed listening too.
Another older recording from around 3 years ago. This was made in Green Park in the West End of London. It was a bright day in February 2016 and a …
Another older recording. This was made about 3 years ago along the Victoria line.
This is a recording from about 4 years ago. Made in the city centre at Porto in Portugal.
This is an older recording that I had originally made about 3 years ago.
I was listening to the bird song punctuated by the occasional car going past and decided that this was a sound worth recording
A busy station with a lot of noise and sounds.
I like the sounds of markets and Borough Market is a lovely place, although it isn't quite as old fashioned as it used to be. Even so, it's got some …
Sounds from the cafe and bookshop on the ground floor
Just making tea and enjoying the sound.
Just a regular bus ride
As you can probably tell, I like the sound of markets, and as this one is fairly local I visit reasonably regularly.
A brief visit to this landmark. I enjoyed the noisy general cafe atmosphere with an occasional hint in the background of the choir from the cathedral itself.
Another City Church. However, this time there was a harpsichord player rehearsing in the church, which made a very special sound in that space.
Another very still recording inside a City church. St Michael Cornhill is small but very beautiful, and once again, I was enjoying the peaceful …
Enjoying the peace and stillness in this beautiful building.
On a Friday. Just walking through and enjoying the sound of a busy market at around 11am.
The sounds of the office, with some ping pong at the start.
Another recording here, just wandering through and listening to the voices and sounds of the market.
Happened upon this guy playing sax.
We had a sudden downpour the other day. The rain was so heavy and was rather lovely to hear, so I stopped to record it for a few minutes.
I just liked the sound here so I recorded it but just on my iPhone
The sound from a tiny school at play time.
I was walking by this busker and had to stop to record him.
Just on the bus
A brief and somewhat quieter walk through Surrey Street Market today, but also with the tram at the end.
Another recording of the atmosphere in the coworking space I use occasionally.
I wanted to record here as they don’t play music so you just hear the ambience of the space. Which I really like.
A brief recording
Just a quick recording with the anchor app itself. A bus ride.
This time it was a much noisier market, which was good. I even caught the tram going by at the end.
This was more of an experiment rather than anything else. I wanted to hear what it was like to listen to my environment through the medium of my field recorder.
It was an interesting experience, and quite different to …
It's always a noisy place.
Although there isn't much left of it really, but it was on my list of market streets to visit in London, so I did. Sadly there wasn't a huge amount to record, but it's ticked off my list now.
A short walk through the market, which was quiet. You can just hear a tram going by at the end.
A bus ride at the beginning of the year.
A brief recording from this National Trust property.
I thought I'd begin this year with a sound I recorded in December. It was in the local park which backs on to an old car showroom site. The site is …
I was passing through a local shopping centre and heard this. A bunch of school children singing some kind of Christmas song. So I took a quick …
A short recording of the Cybraphone in Edinburgh at the National Museum of Scotland. It's quite an interesting machine and it makes a variety of sounds. Here's what the NMS site says about it:
"Meet Cybraphon, the moody …
I do like the sound of trams and this one, in Croydon, was coming down a small slope.
Another older recording today that I thought would be interesting. I like the sound of galleries and the quiet tiny noises you can hear.
This is another older recording that I thought I'd post. The building site was quite noisy, but the main percussive sound drew me into listening and …
I found a bunch of old recordings and decided that I'd podcast a few of them. This one was from a visit to Brussels. I really liked the sound of the …
You often get people busking through the tube (underground trains) in London, but I'd never seen an accordion player there before, so I had to get a quick recording. He wasn't bad either.
This is a sound I've been meaning to record for a long time. This recording is about 3.45 long. The level crossing closes at around 1:10 and then later, after the 2 minute mark you can hear the train leave. It's a GWR …
A really good sax player making some great sounds under South Bridge.
Borough Market is one of my favourite markets in London, and I'm pretty sure that a lot of other people feel the same way as it was packed on Saturday (29th September)
I was out for a day and decided to make some recordings. I heard some singing near London Bridge and followed it to The Bunch of Grapes pub. They …
I was about to get a train home when I heard this pianist who was just playing in the middle of the station. It was very lovely, so I recorded some of it and just paused to enjoy it.
The tram is an excellent way to get from the centre of Edinburgh out to the airport. It's cheap and quick and comfortable. Here's my journey.
I thought I'd record this piper, and kept recording as I walked away.
This was a great exhibition and the sound in the gallery was very peaceful and calm. This is what it sounded like.
I just liked the sound of this engine, so I took a short recording of it.
I was just walking by and heard this guy drumming with old pots and tins. He was great!
This is a landmark in Vancouver, so I had to make a recording of it.
I visited the gallery in July. Apart from being just a beautiful place, it has an amazing collection.
Just a lovely peaceful Sunday morning on our canal trip earlier this year.
I was lucky enough to be at the Schützenfest in Kronach last weekend and watched and recorded the parade which was like nothing else I've seen.
I was recently in Canada and travelled from Toronto to Vancouver by train. When a freight train goes by the passenger train has to stop and wait for it to pass before it can continue. This can take a while as the …
This episode has water sounds from Wales. To be more specific from Llantwit beach. All sounds were recorded using a Zoom H2N recorder in 2016.
Some brief sounds from the East Somerset Railway as I've always liked trains.
Some sounds recorded at a National Trust building in 2016. It had a long gallery at the top of the building and the wind made a really interesting sound there.
These are a couple of field recordings from the Beyond the Border storytelling festival in 2016. The festival itself runs every 2 years, and 2016 was an excellent event. These recordings are from the end of festival …
