While modern sound recordists have it easier now than they ever did thanks to advances in technology, we face something now much more challenging than anyone ever imagined. Recording nature has never been more difficult and finding a space that is 'pure' and natural, without the industrial sound of man is becoming harder by the minute. For me, I get rewarded every now and again with short secret bursts of serenity and while I don't always succeed, the drive to find those sweet spots are what fuels my passion to record natures finest hours.
