“trailing some idea of what radio or “field recording” really with people could be like (though of course the recording is in fact in an actual field a lot of the time) i made this test with my eldest son exploring the fields, ponds and lane which lie near our house. Its an area that is part of the flood plain of the River Mersey in Stretford, the meadow would have originally flooded in heavy rains but doesnt now due to flood defences built in the 70s; huge banks and sluice overflows into Sale Water Park. You can see the remains of some much older sluice gates and a pond which is part of the overflow system in the field we recorded in .”
