I heard this during a phone call and asked for a recording of it. I really like how creaky it is.
I recorded this on Monday in the City. The area felt a lot louder than normal for some reason. It is mostly traffic noise, and I have no idea why it was busier and more noisy than I am used to on that day.
This is a very short recording from a hotel lift in Edinburgh. Every time I pressed the button for the floor I wanted it made this sound. A bit like a squeaky toy. I found it hilarious so I had to record it.
We took this ferry back from Craignure to Oban I made a recording of the safety warning, which was quite extensive.
The tram from Edinburgh airport to the city centre is an excellent service, and, more than that, it has some lovely noises too. If you listen …
I was at the Edinburgh Fringe, and, whilst it felt like a smaller festival than it has been in the past, there were still many of the usual features, such as people performing on the street. Either to promote a show, or …
Ok, the title of this recording is a little misleading. This is the sound of the tube from Stockwell to St Pancras. The person I was travelling with asked why the tube made this horrible wailing sound, and I replied …
I had a few moments and took a walk around a small park in London, listening to the sounds of people, dogs etc. As I was walking there was a bunch of children playing football. I think it was organised, at least as much …
Some more of the brass band at Sanderstead Horticultural show
This is a recording of just the general ambience from the show.
A brass band at the Sanderstead Horticultural show. This local event has been postponed for a couple of years for obvious reasons, so it was great to …
If you listened to the previous recording this will make sense. This is the choir I could hear from inside the pharmacy. They were singing for a …
I was aware that they were there, not far from the automatic door, and every time it opened you got a burst of this really quite lovely singing.
Over the weekend we had some heavy rain and I decided to record it using my Zoom H2n. You can hear that the rain tapers off, but it was a good downpour.
Another recording of watering in the garden
As we have been having a spell of hot weather I have been watering the garden. I thought I would make a little recording of it.
I recorded this using my Apple Watch in the lift at one of the offices that I work in. It makes a lovely grinding sound.
This is another very brief recording from last month. Once again using an Apple Watch to record.
I recorded this last month as I was walking by some road repairs. The only recorder I had to hand was my Apple Watch. So I used that. It's only a very short recording, but I hope you enjoy it.
This was actually recorded a little while ago, in March actually, but I've only just got to uploading it. Also, you might notice that I say that the recording is an hour long. Well the original was, but it was too big …
Before I tell you about this recording it is worth explaining that I have changed the format of the podcast. Now there's a little introduction (spoken) from me and some intro and exit music too. I will probably …
I recorded this at Winchester Cathedral on the 22nd of January 2022.
The natural reverb of the building contributed to the beauty of the singing, but …
This is short part of a longer recording of a train journey to Winchester over the weekend. Having reviewed the whole recording I thought that just …
This is another recording from last weekend at the allotment. I liked the sound that locking and unlocking the gates made, so I recorded it. This is only a short recording, but I find it quite satisfying.
This recording was made over the weekend at the allotment. The site sits between two railway lines, which is why you can hear the sound of trains quite frequently. It was around the middle of the morning on Saturday and …
This is a recording of another local train journey. It was around 8pm in the evening and there were very few people on the train so most of what you hear is just the announcements and the sound of the train itself.
I was in Bristol over the weekend and of course took my recorder with me. I heard the bells from the hotel and took the opportunity to record a few …
I missed a train and had a half hour to kill, so I spent it in a coffee shop I had never been in before.
Yesterday I had to make a few journeys on local trains, so I took the opportunity to make some recordings.
I got this for Christmas and I like the sound it makes, so I made a short recording of it.
This is another old recording that I found recently. These three recordings were taken in the market near the station and outside the Albany. These …
I was going through some old audio files and I found this recording of some of the cars in the vintage car rally from 2013. Some parts of this are …
Kings Wood is a very old, if small wood. It is only a few miles from where I live, so, today, I walked there and spent some time trudging around and …
Thunder is one of my favourite sounds. I recorded this yesterday at home during a downpour.
After too many days of baking hot weather we got some rain, and it made a nice sound too. So I set my recorder to capture it for a while. I hope you enjoy it.
I made this recording yesterday whilst spending a few brief moments on Winchelsea beach. It was beautiful and very peaceful. Just before the heavens …
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 …
