Stuart’s work is inspired by location and the people, experiences and objects he encounters there.

He is particularly interested in sounds that are associated with place, overlooked and overheard noises of the everyday and highlighting the auditory as a defining factor in how we experience a particular environment.

His recordings of people, their activities, experiences and environs have contributed to art installations, phone apps, archival records, dance performances, public consultation events, musical compositions, a computer game, a eulogy and sound tracks to short films.

    Ballingdon Street Allotments - 20th April 2022

    Ballingdon Street Allotments - 20th April 2022

    I went to the allotments to do a bit of digging, weeding and watering. Being next to Sudbury Meadows, and alongside the old railway embankment there had been lots of birds recently so I decided to make a recording and see what birds I could identify (with the excellent Merlin iPhone app). I couldn't identify them all but my knowledge of birds songs and calls is getting better. You might do better than I could. See if you can hear the following:

    Robin, Wren, Blackbird, Song Thrush, Dunnock, Chaffinch, Blue Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Goldcrest, Tawny Owl, Grey Wagtail, Carrion Crow and Wood Pigeon.
