  • Hello from Norwich, UK

    25 years in radio - 20 with the BBC - now a free spirit in the audio world. Love field recordings and creating soundscapes while dabbling with ambiant musical sounds.
    Day job doing mostly AV stuff for public gallery. Most weekend I can be found out in the countryside hunting for sounds.

    Really looking forward to getting to know you all and learning how to make good great!


    A sample sound created from a couple of small wind turbines in Norfolk

    That's a great sample, they sound pretty angry with each other at times.

    We've a whole farm of them nearby but unfortunately a couple of miles out at sea so limited recording opportunities...

          Welcome to AO, looking forward to some Yod-dropping and Glottal stops along the way.

          I have spent some time in Norfolk over the years. The Broads are one of my favourite holiday destinations, affording me the opportunity to "mess around in boats".

          I assume you used contact mics. to record those turbines. Good job
