Recordings from Variable 4 at Snape Maltings

Recordings of the Variable 4 installation at Snape Maltings.

The recordings are unedited and un-effected and were made by walking around the site at dawn using a Audio Technica BP4027 stereo shotgun microphone, Rycote windshield and Tascam HD-P2 portable recorder.

The Freesound Project


We’re big fans of the Freesound Project here at Variable 4. The project is run by the Music Technology Group of Pompeu Fabra University in Spain.

We’ve decided to share our current archive of field recordings that we created for the Dungeness installation on May 22nd 2010.

You can download and listen to the field recordings under Creative Commons license here.

We’ll be updating this page with more recordings as the research period for our next installation gets underway. More news about that coming shortly!
