On Sunday I went home to collect some recordings of Paradise Lane.
I started at the far end of Paradise Lane, which is a footpath that goes alongside a field. I then walked all the way back down towards the houses. I realised when I finished my recordings that I started and ended with the A27, which I thought was quite important and could be used as a possible theme in the piece. As you can probably tell from the photos, it was overcast and had been raining earlier in the morning so the ground was sodden (I decided to walk back up to the top of the path once I had gathered all my field recordings so that I could record my footsteps going back down.
Here are some photos of the area (click for bigger image):
The A27 is behind the trees
Capturing the wind rustling the leaves
Looking down the track
The bridge over the train line
Waiting for a train…
Looking up the track
The horses’ field
Recording my footsteps
The bottom of Paradise Lane

Now to start composing my soundscape…
