Field recording bees in an oilseed rape field, Norfolk, United Kingdom, 26 April 2018.
Recording equipment includes a Sound Devices SD702 two-channel audio field recorder and monopod-mounted Rode blimp suspension & windshield system containing an Audio Technica BP4025 XY stereo microphone. Sennheiser HD 25-1 II monitoring headphones.
Take yourself out of the hustle and bustle of city life, by escaping to the countryside with this album containing in excess of 6 hours of rural sounds and village life, recorded in high resolution audio.
These thirteen tracks document the true, natural soundscape to be heard within the village of Saham Hills, in the heart of rural Norfolk, United Kingdom.
Being natural soundscapes, they include what some may consider as man-made ‘noise’, so don’t be concerned if you hear passing vehicles, voices, aircraft overflights, farming activities, church bells, bird-scarers, shotguns, and strange things which go ‘bump’ in the night; those sounds are what you would have heard, had you been there at the time.
As the label suggests, these are true recordings from The Garden Seat.
