Is the soundscape of the world an indeterminate composition over which we have no control, or are we its composers and performers, responsible for giving it form and beauty? Orchestration is a musician’s business – but isn’t it up to us to undergo a paradigm shift and start seeing – not the music in the global soundscape – but the global soundscape as music? How has the soundscape of the borough changed in your lifetime? Do you have any recordings of times gone by? Come to think of it, do you want to record the present? Would you like to submit sounds to the archive?

Leaves In The Breeze

10/2/2018
More
Recorded at 15 Dragon Parade – out the back – guess that would make it Back Dragon Parade. There was a bit of a breeze kicking up and the leaves made for a natural staccato percussion – I was hoping to record the sound that the breeze makes as it passes through the fire escape […] The post Leaves In The Breeze appeared first on Sound Map Of Harrogate.

Grape Vine In Yorkshire

10/2/2018
More
A friends garden has a grapevine growing in it – not much of it edible as most of the grapes go to the birds – but I placed a mic in the leaves and this is the result. The post Grape Vine In Yorkshire appeared first on Sound Map Of Harrogate.

I sat down outside the Petrol Station with microphones and set to it. To listen to this recording, a good pair of Headphones are recommended. See, this is a […] The post Binaural Pothole Repairs appeared first on Sound Map Of Harrogate.

Summer Fireworks

9/1/2018
More
Recorded at 15 Dragon Parade on 1st September 2018 as Fireworks popped on The Stray. The equipment used means that it is best listened back to on good quality Headphones – this is a binaural recording, so the mics were worn on either side of my head.

Fish & Chips

8/4/2018
More
Recorded in a Seafood restaurant in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The restaurant doubles as a high-end Seafood Restaurant and a Fish & Chip Take-Away, I only use it as a Take-Away. Service was dying down this Friday night and the staff were probably looking forward to their home journey. Now then, I did not ask for permission […] The post Fish & Chips appeared first on Sound Map Of Harrogate.

Bower Road Tunnel

7/27/2018
More
Recorded on a Sennheiser Ambeo Headset as I was walking into town. The reverb from the tunnel as the traffic passed is not too apparent because I was stood on the edge of the tunnel – there is a passing conversation by strangers – I am unsure who they were as my back was turned.
