What Is Field Recording?

“I am a Field Recordist. I take my microphones and recording equipment to places of interest and try and record what those places sound like.”

Above, you will see the short answer – the long answer is that a Field Recording is a recording that was taken outside of the studio. Pioneered by the ethnomusicographers at the beginning of the twentieth century, field recording has blossomed in to a valid artform. Field Recording is the capturing of the sonic ambience of a location and the sound-art I produce is the manipulation of those recordings of a location.

Below, you will find my artist’s blog – keeping you, the listener up to date on developments in sound and goodness-knows what else.

 

 

I am also a photographer who has the good fortune to be on the books of Getty – this was the aim and goal – I will never stray away from Web Design as a living, but it is nice to have a calling card – My portfolio can be found on www.500px.com. I am not a jobbing, commercial photographer – if you want a family portrait I recommend Simon Godsave. I quite like Street Photography and stick to that.

Complete: A New Album “Concrète Nonsense”

I seemed to have dotted all of the "i's" and crossed all of the "t's" on the work scheduled in for August a good while earlier than anticipated - this allowed me to finish off a project I have been working on since March. Back in March 2017, I recorded a series of...

In Praise Of Black & White Photography

We talk a lot about slowing down our approach to taking pictures but maybe we should also slow down when we take them. So often, people take image on their phones. Shooting 20 or 30 images without much thought in a burst of a few seconds. It would be nice perhaps to...

New Release :: A Sonic Map Of Dornoch

A Sonic Map Of Dornoch :: I spent the middle of June up in the Highlands of Scotland – in and around the town of Dornoch, Sutherland. My granny lives in Dornoch and it is the one true geographical constants in a life of uncertainty about where I will be next year. We...

High Harrogate Recording

... yeah, it has been a while. I did not get any sleep last night due to a cough - but I put my time to good use: I was mesmerised by the sound coming through my thin, rattly windows. It was the first time I had noticed the dawn chorus this year. What splendour it was...

End Of Year Wrap 2016

So, what have I been up to? Well: There is now the opportunity to purchase some of the prints I have on display on my site - obviously, not all of the images I have on my site are for sale. I have not include the examples of the the portrait photography that I offer....
