When I say new, of course I mean, there’s a plug in board. This is a first. Sadly on the Olegtron 4060 site there’s no word about how to buy one of these. Which is a shame as I’d love to get hold of one. So I’ve contacted them to find out and hopefully get hold of one for myself.

Modified Toy Orchestra’s Pocket Calculator
I’ve got the vinyl for this and now it’s on SoundCloud too. It’s a brilliant version. I love it!
Thinking about a sound diary
When I was listening to some of my older field recordings I remembered that I’d tried to do a daily recording a couple of years ago. It didn’t last very long sadly. It was a difficult trying to find something every day that was going to be interesting, but it was a good discipline to try for.
I don’t think that I’d be able to maintain a daily field recording diary in 2016, but perhaps weekly might be more achievable? I’ll try it out and see.
Short Trips, The Black Dog
I was skeptical about this audiobook as I thought it would just be too short get a real story going. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Even though it was short, only 35 minutes long, it was great. A good, self contained Doctor Who story. Well narrated by Louise Jameson too.
So I might need to look into a few more of these short trips stories now.
All of my field recordings on SoundCloud are also downloadable as well. In case you wanted to use one for something. If you do, please do let me know as I’d be interested to hear how you use it and in what context.
My field recordings on SoundCloud
I’m sure I’ve posted this before, but here it is again.
All of my field recordings on SoundCloud.
I hope to significantly add to them next year if I can.
Seeing Star Wars The Force Awakens (no spoilers)
Well at last I went to see the new Star Wars film. I went to the iMax at the Science Museum, which is a brilliant place to see the film and a lovely venue all in all.
In some ways I was quite nervous. The original films were a big part of my growing up. The three ‘newer’, or ‘rubbish’ films were such a disappointment that I don’t really count them as Star Wars films at all. So I was worried that it wouldn’t meet expectations. However, it did. I really enjoyed it.
I won’t mention anything about the plot here or give anything away. I think that’s quite an unpleasant thing to do, especially to fans. But it really is a great reboot of the franchise, and a good signal that it’s back on the right track now. I’m glad it’s back.
