Caught by the River

Chris Whitehead – South Gare

12th May 2012


Thought I’d let you know about this release of field recordings by Chris Whitehead I came across recently. It might be up your street…

‘South Gare is at the southern side of the entrance to the River Tees and is a man made area of reclaimed land constructed largely out of blast furnace slag and concrete.The skyline is dominated by industry, notably the huge Redcar Steelworks, yet the Gare is popular with birdwatchers and walkers. It is an interface where two worlds meet and overlap. There are many layers of resonance.A fascinating place from which to glean sonic raw material.’

you can download them (for free) from here.

all the best,
