It started to hail again last night so I put my field recorder out on the sunroom to capture the sound of the hail hitting the thin roof, You can also hear the neighbors dog off in the distance. I will always love this sound.
I have been working on some sounds and visual stuff every day despite this cold im making myself stay productive here is some recent stuff from the weekend and such.
Around 2009 i started going to a old mill that had been shut down in 75' to take field recordings on a regular basis, I had collected them for and sat on most of them until this year when i decided it would be fun to use them in a tape that would later be called Milltown.
The sounds collected are anything from natural ambience to using parts of the mill almost as a instrument. In this video you see me recording the turning of gears in a electrical box. Most of the recordings for this project were taken with a little zoom H4 handheld recorder.
Above you can see some footage of various parts of the mill i took video of back when i was recording.
Below you can see the finished cassette with hand hammered pine case. It is a limited edition run of 50 so get it while you can. Pick of a copy from A Giant Fern.
This is the start of the fourth installment to the project. This release will be done on a 7" record.
In the second week of Jun Mitchell took a two week trip to LA and Portland and along his adventures he recorded some videos of some sounds using his I-phone for us to process. In this video you have a chance to hear the sounds and what is done with them.
I decided to go tag along with some friends this weekend to New York so i could take some field recordings in the city, This is some of the stuff i took during the trip.
Me and sierra finally go out of bed today and went around various parts of Boston recording sounds for some upcoming tape work. Here is some photos and videos from the day.
Here is a clip of wind blowing through reeds,
I went field recording downtown today and decided to get some water sounds for upcoming projects im working on.
