The KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook
This is the official jingle for The KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook. It explains the concept for the book I am producing this year after running a successful funding campaign on the popular Kickstarter website. It is a very simple jingle, it uses just 3 chords and the words are "The KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook, shows you a special way to think and knit and look. It shows you how to translate things that you love into knits, to make colourwork from biscuit tins and plants and roads and bricks. The KNITSONIK Stranded Colourwork Sourcebook; if you've not heard of it you could take a look." I am sharing it with the world in celebration of the fact that my project is now fully funded, and that everyone who made this happen is awesome.
Woodpecker and DIY Duet
I was on my way to work when I noticed the sound of a Woodpecker up in the trees above the high wall to my left. Leant against the wall and listened to the woodpecker, then noticed that on the other side of the path, beyond the fence, someone was doing some sort of DIY. So you can hear on the one side the woodpecker and on the other side of the path, occasional hammerings and saw-rippings. You can also hear distantly the traffic of London Road; Crows; many other birds; and the occasional cyclist or walker using that path. It is a great path and I love walking on it. Often hear Robins, too. #everydaysounds #commute #heardonthewaytowork #Woodpecker

Cumbrian wind in old chimneys
#aeolianmap This is the sound of the cold, wintry wind blowing in the chimney in a big old house in Cumbria, in January 2012.
Light summer wind in the leaves of the mulberry tree in our garden
#aeolianmap This is the wind very lightly teasing the papery leaves of the mulberry tree which I strapped my recorder to one nice day in Summer 2011.
