Sport ball bar

I meet up with an old friend who is a sports ball fan. I used to go with him to these places. Yes, I have had some fun back in the day in a place like this. But, boy I have forgotten how much I actually hated these places of pure hell. Lucky his team […]

Yockenthwaite Stone Circle

Stoned circle

Well my attempt to record the birds and the running water somewhat failed. To get the mic out of the gentle wind I had to put it closer to the water. So therefore the trickle is much higher than intended. This is the little stone circle in Yockenthwaite, it is either the left over of […]

D-Day 75

Well that hit me a wee bit harder than I was expecting. These brave people gave it all for us. Because today we are seeing nutters – whom they fought and laid their life to protect us from – talking utter nonsense again. I don’t want to go back to that dark part of history […]

bird song in the rain

Bird song in the rain

I walk this path twice a day, through a little bit of “woodland”, located between the trees on the bank down to the train line and the trees next to/in the allotments. As you can hear the mutt isn’t much for this standing around listening to the birds. See full screen See full screen

Today I got to listen to 99% Invisible episode – Sound and Health: Cities – about how sounds (noise) they harm our health. This rather apt, as I am doing these soundscapes recordings. Here […]

walking in woodland

A quiet place

Well not really, since you got the sound of the stream, waterfalls, birds and the wind in the trees. Yet it is a good place to go and get away from the “normal” buzz of the town or office. Where you can think and relax in a a quiet place See full screen
