093: Field Notes

A collage of binaural and stereo field recordings: a walk near my house in Mount Vernon, NY; a recording from my backyard as I trim a few trees; a recording alongside the a man-made lake near Highway 44 in suburban St. Louis; a recording of a walk back to work after lunch; among others. The tones are made through using a tone gate on the recordings, so when the wind creates a bit of mic noise, it is joined by tones and cords.

088: Finish line

An eleven minute binaural recording from the finish line of the Sleepy Hallow Halloween 10k (pumpkin carved by my wife).

084: Towards

Towards, is to be listened to while at work – doing tasks that you may not want to do, or monotonous tasks you like. I would suggest gardening, raking leaves, doing dishes, cleaning the house, watching tv or balancing a budget.

Featuring binaural recordings of walking (in the woods, in a park, and on the train) alongside highly processed versions Chopin’s Nocturnes that have been stretched, collapsed and aggressively gated and EQ’d. The recording is just over 2 hours and 16 minutes in length.

077: Counterclockwise around the White House

A stereo field recording from June 4, 2017 in Washington D.C.

The recording begins sitting in Lafayette Square, near the North Lawn of White House. I then walked counterclockwise around the grounds of the White House (north, west, south, east, north). There is an unusually amount interference in the recording, especially present near the South Gate (14:45). I can only assume it is from the surveillance and detection devices at the gate and around the White House. After I walk past the South Gate you can hear in the distance, just down Pennsylvanian Avenue, the finish line for the Girls on the Run 5K. The run is ‘dedicated to creating a world where every girl knows and activates her limitless potential and is free to boldly pursue her dreams.’ At both the beginning and end of the recording there is the sound of a runner who blows Vuvuzela when he passes by the South Lawn.

The recording is about 25 minutes. Continue reading
