FIELD RECORDING

From my earliest memories, I’ve explored the contours of the physical world through its sounds: echoes, reflections, reverberations, and other acoustic phenomena. As a result, I’ve amassed a huge archive of field recordings, ambiences, found audio, shortwave interceptions, and other sonic curiosities over the course of my life. This section will include a cross-section of those recordings, made in Bulgaria, Germany, Japan, Libya, Mali, Socotra, United Arab Emirates, USA, and beyond.

Audio will be made available here via streaming in late 2018.

I’m also available as a consulting field producer and recordist for your audio, radio, or multimedia project, both at home and abroad. Feel free to drop me a line!
