About Us

http://binauraldiaries.co.ukThe Binaural Diaries is my collection of field recordings, or ‘sound photographs’.Much of this work is created using a technique called 'binaural recording'. This is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3-D stereo sound sensation for the listener of actually being in the environment that was captured. Listen using headphones to enjoy this effect.My current field recording setup comprises of a pair of Sound Professionals SP-TFB-2 binaural microphones and a Sony PCM M-10 recorder.

Alistair Park Woodcarving - Drawknife on Larch

https://binauraldiaries.co.uk/alistair-park-woodcarving/ Having talked about doing it for quite some time, I recently visited Alistair Park at his studio at Bower Ashton in Bristol to make field recordings of some of the sounds that his tools make in use. Alistair has been working with wood for over 20 years, and it was a great pleasure to see him practising his craft and to hear the sounds made by various wood carving techniques that he chose to demonstrate. It's clear that such craftsmanship relies on an intimate understanding of the associated tools and materials. It goes without saying that the appearance and feel of the wood are key when crafting the raw material into the end result, but I was interested to learn that also the smell of the wood and the sounds made when working it all feed into the creative process. In this recording Alistair demonstrated the use of a very old drawknife on a piece of larch. You can learn more about Alistair’s work at his website http://www.carv...
