100 Days of Something: 47

I haven’t made many field recordings in the last few years. I’m wondering if that fits in with a general trend – it seems like there was a lot more activity in the 00s. Perhaps it’s just a shift of interest on my own part. Chris Watson keeps on doing his thing, for example.

I have found myself listening to the environment a little more during the last months though, and thought it might be nice to include some audio in these notes. I got out my old Sony PCM-D50, recharged some batteries, and hoped to get a recording of the goods train that sometimes passes our apartment late at night. But no goods train, or satisfactory recording of something else. So words instead.
