Site specific work Sound recordings Wildlife

Wollaton Hall Gardens and Deer park, Nottingham


May 2008

The binaural audio recorded at this site includes the environment inside Wollaton Hall, including the staff and visitors and sounds from the park area, including people playing games and traffic.

When recording binaural audio, it can be frustrating when great sounds are not recorded and documented, for example: an elderly couple arguing as they walked towards me and a couple shouting at a dog who had stolen part of their picnic! However, for me the whole process of recording binaural audio is about trying to silently observe the surrounding environment, but this can be a challenge when you desperately want to comment on your surroundings, laugh or sneeze!

Please listen to Wollaton Hall and Deer Park via stereo headphones.  Approx 2 minutes
