Where I live…

Posted by fieldradio in Uncategorized

This month's field radio comes to you from the market town of Lewes, about 9 miles out of Brighton. I wanted to capture the every day of walking the streets with my dog; doing the recycling and going to the pub, through a series of audio snapshots and soundwalks. As always please post any comments on the site, or write to me at artofnoises@gmail.com...

The heart of Brighton?

Posted by fieldradio in sound art, phonography, radio

A late addition from last month's broadcast... This is an exploration of Brighton's famous Lanes, taking in a circular route starting from Brighton Square outside Moshi Moshi. As always, please listen on headphones, as Field Radio is recorded in binaural stereo. You can hear the broadcast version of Field Radio on Radio Reverb, 97.2 fm in the Brighton & Hove area at 11pm on Wednesday evening, with a new programme aired monthly. Go to www.radioreverb.com for more information.

Palace of Shopping

Posted by fieldradio in sound art, phonography, radio

The latest edition of Field Radio comes to you from that temple of consumerism, Churchill Square. I took a soundwalk around the public areas of the building and created a sonic portrait of a local landmark that both celebrates and questions our obsession with global capital in the form of branded shopping malls. All comments welcome as always...

What the f*** is happening in Falmer?

Posted by fieldradio in sound art, phonography, radio

This latest edition comes to you from the village of Falmer on the outskirts of Brighton. The fragments of audio you will hear come from recordings made at What the F*** is Happening Now - a one-day "happening" at Falmer House just off the village green. Field Radio is recorded in binaural stereo so please listen to the show on headphones. We welcome your comments and feedback.

In Droves

This month we take another psychogeographic sound walk, this time along the route of the ancient drove ways of Brighton, from Seven Dials to Five Ways. Now part of the urban sprawl, these routes would formally have been where farmers drove their sheep... Field Radio is broadcast in binaural stereo - please listen on headphones.

Walk on the Wild Side

This month Chris and I took a walk up through Wild Park, at the edge of the city, towards an ancient hill fort that now forms part of a municipal golf course. As ever we welcome your comments and emails. Field Radio is recorded in binaural stereo, so please listen to the show on headphones.

A trip down memory lane

Posted by fieldradio in sound art, phonography, radio

This month, a little late granted... we celebrate the first anniversary of the legendary, ground-breaking radio show that is Field Radio. A fond retrospective of some of the raw recordings from a selection of the shows that we produced in our first year of broadcasting - some of which have never been heard before. As always, we welcome your comments and emails.

An exultation of urban noise

Posted by fieldradio in sound art, phonography, radio

This edition of Field Radio comes to you from the launch of the Manifesto of Neo-Futurism on the 20th February in Jubilee Square. Recorded in Binaural stereo, this work is best listened to on headphones. The recording was made by Lisa Barnett for Radio Reverb.

Scratch Sounds
