The Other Sodding Tractor

Please see my previous post and then join me as I try to record the tranquil sounds of the River Deveron, near to Banff, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. It clearly isn’t my day for field recording! Today is a public holiday and I would expect any self-respecting farmers to take a day off. Not in Banff. So please enjoy the tranquil sounds of the River Deveron passing you by and the delightful sound of a f**king tractor pull a rake around a nearby field. Using my directional parabolic mic (DM), I can hear the sounds of tractors and other industrial noises several kilometres away.

The Sodding Tractor!!!

Join me as I try to record the sound of birds today. It is public holiday here today in Scotland. There is no wind. It would have been a perfect day to record bird sounds in the woods near to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duff_HouseDuff House in Banff, Aberdeenshire. Wonderful bird sounds but oh my, the noise of a f**king tractor on Banff Golf Course provided unwanted background noise to the recording of the birds who were really going for it in the woods today. Pah!

The Full On Attack on the Senses

Another example of truly horrible art that must surely be worse than any of the other rubbish I’ve knocked out over the years. This abhorrent image, if you cared to look at it, would have the same effect as having red hot needles plunged into your eyes. You have been warned. Look away now. NFT anyone?

The Tragic End of an Image..

Another image bites the dust after being ravaged by the Photoshop Neural Filter. It is cruelty on an epic scale. This image has been well and truly brutalised. Further abuse has been applied to this image using a symmetry filter. My cruelty towards images knows no bounds. Lovers of fine art everywhere, feel free to weep. NFT anyone?

The Cave and the Libyan Sea

Join me in a cave close to the Libyan Sea in Crete. The cave was a natural echo chamber. Listen to the waves breaking and the echo as the sound of the waves bounced around inside the cave. You will also hear me tramping about in the cave. There was no sand but plenty of gravel underfoot.

The Mountain Critter

I came across this little chap whilst I was wandering around the mountains in Crete today. He or she wasn’t best pleased to see me and soon scampered off. We’ve been trying to work out whether anyone owns the goats or whether they are just wild…
