I’ve posted a couple of audio excerpts from the recordings I made last weekend – the postpak tube in the backyard, and the yellow cup beneath the jetty in Semaphore.

To demonstrate how I use such recordings for purposes beyond treated field recordings*, I rendered a small section of the postpak recording into a rich drone using a subtle combination of filtering, (discreet) delay and reverb.
