‘Saham by Gaslight’, an eleven track album captures the natural ambience heard between midnight and dawn at Saham Hills, a typical English village set in the heart of rural Norfolk. UK.
As with all Lawrence Barker’s natural field recordings, no attempt has been made to either enhance the audio, or filter out unwanted sounds by the use of audio processing techniques. The use of headphones places the listener at the particular time and location the recording was captured.
Album released May 27, 2017
