Saham Hills Unleashed

sony-pcm-d100

Recorded at Saham Hills, Norfolk, England. UK. ‘Saham Hills Unleashed’ is a 3-track album of natural field recordings carried out between 23:11hrs 31 December 2016 and 00:10hrs 01 January 2017.

The 3no. tracks capture an amazing diversity of sound to be heard from Saham Hills, which includes not only the more distant and heart-warming ‘mellow’ sound of church bells wafting in on the gusty breeze, as bell ringers work hard to tame the 6 bells within St. George’s Church at Saham Toney, but also a sonic assault from the immediate neighbourhood as New Years Eve celebrations get under way. Party and firework celebrations can also be heard from afar, as the surrounding villages and particularly the market town of Watton appear to jump-start the New Year celebrations.

WARNING  **********  Listener discretion advised. Do not be deceived by the quieter passages within the tracks, as there are some sudden, unexpected, and seriously loud events!!
