Animal voice recordings (including birds, frogs, seals and insects)

Binaural audio recordings (Realistic 3D surround sound for headphones- as if you were there when it happened)

Binaural audio walks (site-specific audio tours- like museum tours but much more interesting with a contemporary twist!)

Sound installations (Sound recordings taken from places and buildings to create installations for art exhibitions)

Hydrophone recordings (underwater recordings)

Contact microphone recordings (to pick up the sound of vibrations rather than air pressure, for example the sound of a wasp and ant fighting!)
