"Tea: first ever recording I made! I think the equipment used was just a blue mikey and an old iPod - sounds okay though?
Henry Moore Sculpture Gallery: my wife, Kathryn, & I caught the bus into Leeds from our hometown of Harrogate. Admittedly, I got a few stares on the bus when I whipped out the recorder. The gallery said that we were not allowed “Recording Equipment” on the premises - this led to a daring-do air of espionage as I pottered around the installations.
Postcard from ASDA (Harrogate): voyeurism at its finest! - People had just seen the New Year in and I caught them spilling out of ASDA one frosty morning.
Postcard from Newby Hall: my Dad, Philip, is the Farm Manager at Newby Hall - a stately home set on the out skirts of the Yorkshire Dales. Unfortunately, The local Landlord holds alot of bird shoots - some of the game birds seek refuge in our garden. It is from the garden at dusk that I took this recording. The shrill squawk of a bird is a Pheasant. You can even hear a Frog ‘ribbit’ in the background.
I always enjoy going back to my parents - it is not the scene of my youth, but it has a nostalgic, therapeutic effect on me" - Andrew Backhouse.
