||Gedichtje Radiophonique||There hasn't been much time to go out specifically to record recently, so when I chucked a handheld recorder in my bag before heading out this morning, it was just good practice. I even brought headphones and told myself I'd use them. - Out on the bike,||3/2/2014||Free||View In iTunes|
||Foghorn Requiem||The foghorn requiem was performed on 23 June 2013 on a cliff top in northeast England. The full write-up and essential links from Robin Thefog is here – Robin and I met before the event then each went about our own recordings. Here's my edit,||7/1/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Knokke/Zwin nature walk||Another of my nature sound walk thingies, this time in the dune and polder nature reserve at Knokke, the northernmost town on Belgium's coast.||6/1/2013||Free||View In iTunes|

||The Thames at Hammersmith, a week after The Boat Race||Some rowers are on the river, some with a coach in a motor boat, some not; a river cruiser passes; and more. I spent half an hour recording with hydrophone and stereo mic, and have made this excerpt, combining the mono hydrophone and regular stereo mic,||4/13/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Urban Reservoir one Sunday Morning||After two days at the In The Field symposium, I was woken early on Sunday by a sound that brought to mind two recordings we heard at the event: Swans taking flight, in-close, by Simon Elliot, and children playing in a large courtyard,||2/18/2013||Free||View In iTunes|
||Walks on Hampstead Heath||Simple field recordings, and me describing, some probably fairly ordinary sounds of Hampstead Heath Extension and the adjoining Sandy Heath.||11/10/2012||Free||View In iTunes|
||Antwerp Central Station Field Recording||Four minutes in the main hall of Antwerp Central Station in late August. The space is gorgeous to look at too!||9/22/2012||Free||View In iTunes|
||White Cliffs of Dover||Another of those nature walks I do. If you've heard one, you'll know that listening is a waste of your time. - 1 August, 2012, and we're walking from Folkestone about halfway to Dover.||9/2/2012||Free||View In iTunes|
||Being stopped in my tracks on Hampstead Heath Extension||Out for a wander with newly thrown-together microphone windshields to test, nearly leaving the Heath, where the National Grid has works underway on requiring temporary traffic lights on the road just nearby. -||7/31/2012||Free||View In iTunes|
||I wanted to settle down here||A radio feature, a travelogue. A version of an RTÉ Doc on One that I never made – despite help and support from them and Russell Finch, I got so far, and not all the way. Half a year later, it turns out I hadn't quite said everything I had to.||5/30/2012||Free||View In iTunes|
