Hi. You are super welcome to use these field recordings in your own compositions or to create your own samples. All I ask is that if you put anything out commercially with them, please donate even just a fiver to Greenpeace, or another eco charity. Feel free to tag me, or invite me to follow your work - I'd just really love to hear what you have created, & to support you.
Throughout October 2021, in the run up to the Wild Service album launch, I ran field recording workshops in London's ancient woodland, working alongside ecologists & a forest school. Kindly supported by the Arts Council. These are the results of our recording experiments.
They are the raw recordings to give you maximum creative control. Feel free to make beats, samples, for background ambience, loops, one shots, whatever you like. There's some great moments in there. I think my fav in the surround sound fly.
Notes: One recording is in surround, another is more directional, we used tripods, zoom H4n & H2, with wind shields, & silent disco equipment to monitor and toggle between the recorders, so that we could place them away from the group , so as to not effect the recording. It also gave participants the power to experience the difference between different recording approaches in real time.
Decisions about recorder placement etc were arrived at as a group, with a little guidance. These were the results of our experiments. Enjoy!
Much love Stace xx
