afterguard


Sounds of land and sea, gadgets and gremlins, people and places draw me into the world and remind me: "Listen!"

Afterguard first used his SONY Cybershot's MPEG video microphone for mono recordings. Now he records in stereo on a ZOOM Handy Recorder H4 .

He edits on Audacity and uploads his mixed work to ccMixter and to his audio blog. That address is http://writinginstereo.podbean.com.
