New Work Underway

Following the success of Slimbridge, I've started working on a new environmental film exploring themes of green infrastructure and noise pollution, using a combination of adapted microcomputers, high-level programming languages and recording equipment.

In the meantime, feel free to check out Plastic, which was selected for screening during the opening ceremony of the NaturVision Film Festival 2016 in Ludwigsberg, Germany.

I've also just completed a busy period of spring/early-summer recording, adding some fascinating sounds to my library. Highlights include blackcap mimicry (with the imitated song thrush clearly audible in the distance), and a whitethroat singing amongst coastal scrub.
