New Sounds Now Available on Sound Dogs

I am happy to announce that Audious now has a selection of 35 sound recordings available on Sound Dogs.

The selection includes 16 exclusive recordings made for the Rye Town Collection.

Also available are many more unreleased Sound Recordings and others which have previously been heard in on Audious podcasts and videos. These sounds include: Tawny Owl, South Bank Skate, Water Under Harbor and Lewes Festival Crowd.

I also highly recommend you have a listen to the Sea Bird Dawn Chorus. It is an amazing Wall Of Sound created by the wonders of nature. Definitely worth a listen.

You can check out the collection here: Link

iPhone Sounds From Morocco

I recently took a trip to Morocco where I heard some amazing sounds and took some nice photographs.

I had to record some of the sounds I heard, so I used my iPhone 4 to record the sounds (using Blue Fire). Unfortunately the Blue Mikey (which works with Blue Fire) isn't compatible with the iPhone 4 yet, but they're working on a new one. I'll certainly make sure I have one of those next time I go on Holiday.

Here is a recording of a cricket that was chirping away outside of my bedroom window in Taghazout. Apologies in advance, these are taken straight from my phone and not edited.

Okay, the picture doesn't match the sound here. But this is what people goto Taghazout for. :)

The second recording was made in Dades Gorge, in the Hills of Morocco, whilst travelling toward Merzouga and the Sahara. It's not as clear as the last one because there was a very loud running river below. See the photo for the scene.

Fire Place

The house boiler has broken, so we've had to make use of the Fire Place to keep warm.

I took the opportunity to capture the sound and put together a video using from photographs.

Hope you enjoy.

Forest Bird Chorus

As the morning sun is creeping through the trees, you can hear a variety of different species of English birds.

You can purchase an MP3 version of this track for £1.50.

During 2010 I got up early one morning and headed to a nearby Woodland to capture the dawn chorus.

I used this recording to gather information during some research I am continuing to do. For more information on leaving feedback please click here.

Yacht passing by the boat yard

During summer 2010, I was collecting sounds and ambiences from around Rye, East Sussex, UK.

Because Rye is a Cinque Port town and famous for its fishing community,  I spent a large portion of this time at Rye Harbor.

Here is a sample of one of my favourite recordings from the project.

Listen to the cables rattling against the masts in the boatyard, the people looking forward to enjoying their day on the passing yacht, the calling of sea birds and the waves of the wake splashing against the shore.
