The fifth Bumble entry is on the way: keep an eye on the news feed this weekend for more info.

PhD research at the University of Birmingham is progressing very well. I’ve been focusing heavily on extracting textural detail from a number of recordings, using an intensive processing regime to bring out sonic detail at the microscopic level; the resulting source materials will be used in the composition of my first 8-channel works early next year. More information will follow as my work in the studio progresses.

Tomorrow will see the first of several attempts to record the late-October red deer rut in Exmoor National Park, using parabolic reflectors and remotely deployed microphone arrays.
