Manipulating sound can serve many purposes, not least the intention of putting the listener’s imagination in the environment of the sound. I have included here two audio tracks from StillWalks® videos I have produced as, for me, they make for a relaxing soundscape even without the visual aid of the still images that form the videos.
You can find out more about StillWalks at www.stillwalks.com and more soundscapes along with images can be found on the StillWalks blog. You can also buy and follow me on bandcamp.

Other sounds I enjoy working with are quite different to those found in a natural environment – that of metal. In fact, the first sound compilation below was made using the various sounds of gates on walks in the countryside. The others, however, you may not find so entertaining!

WARNING – The sounds below may make you jump!
My Metal Distortion 002
My Metal Distortion 003
Love these – except the last one – I found that one really hard to listen to.
Noisy Gates is my favourite.
If it’s the metal distortions you mean, I appreciate most would not like these but the sounds of metal really fascinate me. Glad you enjoyed the gates
