Since starting field recording work, I have become increasingly aware of just how much the mind selectively hears what you need to hear, and what you don't. My first field recordings were a revelation to me. For example, I had never noticed before just how intrusive traffic noise is in my everyday life. A simple recording made in the (quiet!) countryside brought this realisation crashing home!
My field recording interest has always been there, even from when I started playing bass guitar. I would often record jam sessions and gigs, very much as I do field recordings now. Documenting things that I hear around me. Back then, I didn't have a name for it, now I do.
All my field recording work is captured using 'Soundman Binaural In-Ear Stereo Microphones' with a 'Sony MZ-R91 Minidisc Recorder' and mastered using 'Pro Tools' software on an Apple iMac 233. I have work for other people to enjoy in self packaged CD-R formats, and I like working on a swap-ware basis. One of mine for some work of yours! But I am quite happy to send stuff out regardless, often for free, if someone requests it. Comments and feedback are always welcome.
