Back in Newcastle this week to work with Sunderland’s alternative rock band Social Room, some great tunes coming out soon!
This year I was fortunate enough to get intimately involved with Electric Spring 2016 and given the opportunity to run tech for the festival’s final night.
A number brilliant artists presented their work over the week, with projects ranging from audio/visual experiences to surround sound immersion and interactive installations; all of which was enabled by the University’s HISS equipment.
This week I took the opportunity to mix the amazing Jah Wobble, and got to play with the university’s new DiGiCo SD8 digital desk.

Here’s a demo of what can be achieved with the sound library I’ve been working on.
Hard at work over the next two weeks working with the brilliant guitarist Christopher McLaren.
One beautiful space and seven great microphones are all it takes to capture an emotionally stirring collection of music. Included in this this session are a valve body mic, a spaced omni pair, ORTF from behind and a Blumlein pair.
Out and about this week collecting sounds for the Huddersfield – Ambience & Foley Sound Library. Indoors and outdoors, town centre to the middle of the woods, all have been sonically explored.
To collect such a wide variety of sounds I’m making use of the trusty Roland R-26 portable recorder in conjunction with a Beyerdynamic MC 836 Shotgun Microphone; monitoring on location with a pair of Beyerdynamic DT770M headphones.
