    I have a YouTube Channel where I have been upload some Binaural Recordings. Binaural recording is a method of recording sound that uses two microphones, arranged with the intent to create a 3D stereo sound sensation, often a dummy head is used.

    I usually record Nature sounds:

    But this week I decided to do something different and record Sounds of Traffic - M60 Motorway. This didn't go as planned. I was hoping to get a much longer recording but my first attempt was interrupted. Turns out if you stand on a bridge over a motorway holding a dummy head people call the police. So I was joined on the bridge by a police officer and after giving him a tour of my recording rig he radioed to others to "stand down".

    In the future I hope to record / create more Virtual Train Journeys. I want improve on my first attempt, when I was in New York, I recorded the Subway from Time Square to Central Park. Due to the current global pandemic public transport isn't great so I'm going to have to wait before I can do those types of recordings again.

      This is super cool dude! I've always had a fascination with binaural audio so it's always cool to find another channel about it! What kind of mics do you use? I've been meaning to get into binaural recording myself but I could never really find a good way to get started.

        I also have fascination with binaural audio. I studied psychoacoustics (the psychology of hearing) at University.

        A binaural head is very expensive so I have been experimenting with making my own. You need a stereo matched pair of condenser mics.

    I'm working on porting my choosable-path story to my gemini page. I'm not writing anything new but reading through it again is making me want to.

    Been working on playing Solar while also getting used to hearing the metronome on 2 and 4. Once I lock in to the groove it isn't too hard to imagine the metronome as high-hat accents, but getting locked in still tricks my brain a bit at the onset.

    Late last year I found a copy of Blackstone Fortress for a really low price (I think it was around $80 USD). I intended to paint it up and gift it to a friend who is really into board games. With the virus, I've been spending a few hours a day slowly painting it.

    I'm DMing two seperate Dungeons & Dragons campaigns. I'm also in the middle of writing like 3 different short stories, all in different genres, which I might put online eventually. I really gotta finish some of them, but it's so tempting to start new projects!

    I've been producing and just recording random stuff in general for the past few years but this year I've finally gotten confident enough to actually put it up somewhere. So here's the obligatory self-promo . I've been really proud of how much better my music has gotten over the past few years so I'd love it if you guys checked it out!
